Why I Relay

Why I Relay

I started attending after my Grandfather was diagnosed more than 13 years ago with Stage IV Melanoma (given a 10% chance), but my journey with ACS grew with my own Stage IV High Risk Neuroblastoma diagonosis when I was 12.  Kids get cancer too and it’s not as rare as people think!

Did you know more than 40,000 kids are in treatment every year?  Did you know without specific programs like the American Cancer Society’s #GoldTogether many kids would not have an opportunity for a better tomorrow?  

Chosen as Illinois 1st American Cancer Society-Voices of Hope Ambassador I relay for all fighting the fight, but I’m a voice for those without a voice including the pediatric population.  I’ve seen kids die, I’ve seen parents beg for options, I understand the need #GoldTogether do you?  To watch a child battle will inspire you, let me motivate you to save lives with novel therapies discovered in research being done by the American Cancer Society.  Let kids have an opportunity to grow up!

That's why I'd love your support. Will you walk with me? And if you can't would you be so kind as to make a donation?

Thank You Donors

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
