4 words a parent never wants to hear...your child has cancer. Ella was diagnosed with a rare form of muscle cancer. The beads she is holding signify every treatment, chemo, radiation, blood draw, and hospital stay. Something a child shouldn't have to endure. She has been so courageous in fighting this awful disease. CHOP has been a miracle in helping the Smith family; the support & treatment they received was extraordinary!!! Please donate any amount you can to help other families. 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:
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.
