I am a senior at Cumberland Valley High School and thrilled to be part of FTK for my second year!
I am taking a stand against childhood cancer by joining more than 90,000 Mini-THON® students who are fundraising for Four Diamonds.
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.
One of my childhood friend's, Makayla, suffered with leukemia since birth. I knew what made her the happiest were the kindest little things, like a high-five or even a smile. One memory I have with her was in kindergarten. We dressed up, rode in a limo, and went to eat at McDonald's. It was so fun! When we came back to school, all of our classmates looked at us as if we were famous. It felt amazing to be by her side! I do Mini-THON to see kids SMILE! :))
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.
