#STRONG4 Courageous Kids
#STRONG: For 7 years, I have been an advocate for childhood cancer… Walking alongside countless families as they embark on this journey. Throughout the years I have befriended many kids and their families... I have celebrated milestones; results like stability or NED, gone to school plays, birthdays, watched them run the bases in Little League and for a few celebrated 5 years cancer-free... I have also stood by with bad results, visited hospitals countless times, and sadly have also said goodbye to a few kids I have loved like family.
This year I've decided to change it up and run the 5K for Carter and Josh (#CarterStrongForever & #JoshStrong28), participate in the 5K Walk for Brody and Dominic Henriquez, and maybe run the Kids 1K alongside my buddy Brody. I'll be on Team Brody representing 4 boys who are the definition of #STRONG
My life forever changed when I was introduced to a local child battling DIPG. I had no idea about the realities of childhood cancer… That some diagnoses gave children 1% chance of surviving just one year.
As you grow up, you start to learn how fragile life can be… For these kids, they sadly learn that lesson early. Because of that one little girl and every kid who has stolen my heart since, I will NEVER give up on my journey as an advocate.
If you can, PLEASE consider donating.. Any amount helps and is so greatly appreciated. These kids deserve a future, it’s up to us to find it.
