As an 8th grade girl getting prepared for high school, at the age of 13, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and have since turned to Pediatric Cancer Foundation to show my eternal support and appreciation for the cause. I am currently 25 years old and will never forget in 2001, at the very end of my middle school years, when I endured intense weekly chemotherapy treatments for 6 months at Westchester Medical Center. I always say I lost my strength and my hair but never my hope. Thanks to an overwhelming amount of support, including from Pediatric Cancer Foundation, I am proud to be a survivor and cancer-free.
It is with great gratitude that I invite you, your friends and family to join me on Sunday, April 28, 2013 at Pediatric Cancer Foundation's 19th annual Walkathon at Riverside Park, NYC.
Pediatric Cancer Foundation does an amazing job in getting the community involved in this great cause. It is truly incredible and touching to see people help fight this fight for you and with you. The supporters are everyday people who encourage and give us love and hope. Hope for a world where one day no child will ever have to hear the word "cancer"Ě again. In the meantime, let's walk together, strive together, hope together and most importantly ...hold the hand of a child together to one day get closer to a cure.
