The Parkway Run & Walk is so much more than just a 5K run/2K walk. It’s about a community coming together with one goal: to create a future without pediatric cancer. Although we won’t be gathering with our friends and family on the Parkway, we’ll still be raising funds to find a cure.
2020 has been a year of cancellations, postponements and inconveniences. There is one thing that hasn't stopped, our daughter, Naomi's, cancer treatments. For families like ours who have a child battling cancer, the invasive treatments, powerful drugs and hospital visits continue. Naomi bravely takes on cancer every day, pandemic or no pandemic.
On February 18, 2019, Naomi was diagnosed with ALL, the most common form of childhood cancer. ALL was one of the 1st cancers to benefit from intensive and widespread research efforts to find a cure. There is still work to done though. The chemotherapies used to treat ALL date back to the 1960s. Naomi will face long term physical and mental challenges as a result of the harsh drugs she receives daily.
We are raising money for childhood cancer research. It is vitally important for our daughter's life and the lives of so many other children. Please make a donation in Naomi's name.
Join us today — because a future without cancer begins with us!
Cancer Doesn't Stop, And Neither Will We:The world slowed down, but parents were still hearing the words “your child has cancer.”
