Jakey's Journey 2017 Parkway Run & Walk

I’m raising money to help fight childhood cancer and fund lifesaving research and innovative care at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.  Join me to help CHOP make a difference today!

Why this is so important to me:

My friends, Paul and Anjeli DelPrato, have been walking alongside their son, Jakey, throughout his cancer treatment and they need our support.  Jakey is fighting Leukemia every day and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is his hope and will provide the cure.  My son, Nick, is a survivor of childhood cancer of 30 years and would not be alive today if not for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.  The doctors and nurses at the cancer center are working miracles every day.  The research at CHOP is making long, happy lives possible for countless children but there is much work remaining to be done.  

I am thankful for the doctors, nurses and scientists at CHOP.   Please help me help them to continue their amazing work for all of our kids.

Patients Need Us 
Parents shouldn’t have to hear the words “your child has cancer.” However,  1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they’re 20 years old.

Breakthroughs Are Upon Us
CHOP’s Center for Childhood Cancer Research is one of the most distinguished research programs in the nation. 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.

How You Can Help Make an Immediate Impact Today
100% of every donation helps CHOP make important breakthroughs in understanding the causes of childhood cancer – and developing treatments that improve cure rates.

Thank you for your support!
