As you read this post, you will have the privilege of meeting Halston. His parents are Steven (Army) and Mandi and grandson of my sweet friend B. Halston was diagnosed with AML M7, a rare type of pediatric leukemia. It represents 1% of all childhood leukemia and has an overall survival rate of 35 to 60%. He was diagnosed at 14 months of age and had a series of treatments including a transplant on February 26, 2015. Haltson spent many long days and nights in the hospital in Philadelphia to ensure he got the best care possible. He has been in remission since then (over three years!).
This June, Halston’s Homeys is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!
Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.
Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.
So we are raising funds through our challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.
Please support us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.
Your support will change little lives.
