This year marks team Friends For Ana's 11th year participating in CHOP's annual Parkway Run and Walk. As many of you know, my niece Ana was a beautiful and brave five year old when ATRT took away her precious life.
Please consider making a donation and/or joining our team as we walk the Parkway on Sunday September 24th alongside the many survivors and in memory of those who have lost their battle with pediatric cancer. Your support will directly fund CHOP's cancer research and survivorship programs and make an incredible difference in the lives of children fighting pediatric cancer.
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.
