I am raising money to help conquer childhood cancer and support groundbreaking research at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). During my last semester at college, I was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma. To treat my cancer, I had surgery, now chemotherapy, and eventually radiation. I’ve been lucky enough to have the best care at CHOP with an amazing nursing team. Join me today — because cancer breakthroughs begin at CHOP!
Why this is important to me:
PATIENTS NEED US: Parents shouldn’t have to hear the words “your child has cancer,” but 1 in 285 children in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.
BREAKTHROUGHS ARE UPON US: Every day, CHOP’s Cancer Center team is redefining what a cancer diagnosis means for a child. The center offers the most advanced therapies available anywhere in the world, including cutting-edge clinical trials that reprogram the body’s own immune system to fight cancer. CHOP’s Center for Childhood Cancer Research is one of the most distinguished research programs in the nation.
How You Can Help:
MAKE AN IMMEDIATE IMPACT TODAY: 100% of every donation to the 2022 Parkway Run & Walk, presented by Citadel, will help CHOP make important breakthroughs in understanding the causes of childhood cancer, developing new treatments that will improve outcomes for children, and one day may lead to a cure for childhood cancer. Thank you for your support!
