I am taking a stand against childhood cancer by joining more than 90,000 Mini-THON® students who are fundraising for Four Diamonds and kids like Devin.
Since becoming a mom, my eyes have been opened to the fact that cancer does NOT discriminate. I've seen both friends and family battle cancer. While many beat cancer, some do not and this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. In November 2015, a good friend and coworker of mine passed away from Leukemia at the age of 28. I know that this isn't really considered "childhood cancer" because 28 is the age of an adult, but he was someone's child. He was just beginning the rest of his life. I can only begin to image what his parents went through and I want to be a part of ending childhood cancer and I also want to help families survive the financial setbacks that come with a cancer diagnosis.
In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 kids diagnosed every year. The dollars I raise support some of the latest breakthroughs in childhood cancer research. Having a better understanding of how cancer works will help Four Diamonds’ researchers develop new, more effective treatments to test through clinical trials and save more lives.
Your support also ensures that every Four Diamonds child, regardless of income, receives the highest quality of childhood cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care. But Four Diamonds needs your help to conquer childhood cancer. Please support my efforts to save more kids fighting cancer by making a donation today.
