As many of you know, Sierra Johnson was diagnosed with infant leukemia in May. This type of Leukemia is where the cell has an anomaly- Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and KMT2A (MLL) Gene Rearrangement. This is a very rare form of cancer and is under-researched.
We’re raising money to help fight childhood cancer and fund lifesaving research and innovative care at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. You can run with us, walk with us or join us in spirit to help CHOP make a difference today!
As we all know, Sierra rocks! To let more people know, we have a design for our tanktop for the Donor drive team!
The tanktops are royal blue with an orange design in support of Sierra. They will cost between 10-15$ depending on how many we order. That is just the price for ordering and buying the shirt and goes to the company we are ordering from; you should get the money to Kirsten (by way of others if necessary/easier). I will update this with the price after we have all the orders.
Please let Kirsten (Kirstin Lindermayer ) know what you need by 9/12!
The sizes are unisex sizes, XS through 2XL.
