As an ambassador this year, I would like to bring your attention to the prevalence of childhood cancer, and how CHOP is helping to save and better the lives of children affected by it.

I was diagnosed with cancer in January of 2017. My final diagnosis of non-HPV cervical cancer was in April of 2017. The creation and discovery of the immunotherapy that I am on now is funded by donations like yours. Thank you for your generous gifts to help save and better the lives of kids like me.

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

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 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 percent of every donation to the Parkway Run & Walk 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!
