Read Jordyn’s Story on the CHoP Parkway Run Ambassador’s page:
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:
CHoP has been caring for Jordyn in her fight for the last 13+ months. The nurses and doctors have been amazing. There is so much research that is needed to further understand why this happens and how to more effectively treat AML. We have seen so many families utterly destroyed by this disease and these children do not deserve to endure the things we ask them to go through to try and cure this awful disease.
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.
