We are raising money to help fight childhood cancer and fund breakthrough research and innovative care at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Join us – together we can make a difference!
Why This Is So Important to Our Team:
On February 18, 2019 we heard the words every parent dreads "your daughter has cancer". Fortunately for us this news was immediately followed by "we can cure her". We are fortunate within the cancer community because our daughter, Naomi, has 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.
We are walking to raise money for childhood cancer research. It is vitally important for our daughter's life and the lives of so many other children. Please walk with us and/or make a donation in Naomi's name.
Patients Need Us
Parents shouldn’t have to hear the words “your child has cancer,” but 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 2019 Parkway Run & Walk, presented by Citadel, 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.
