My oldest son, the reason the childhood cancer community is so very, very close to me, and why I continue to advocate for less harsh treatments designed FOR children; not the leftovers of adult treatments with chemotherapeutic agents 50+ years old.

My Story

27 Aug 2021

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because I was incredibly naive in the world of childhood cancer. In the fall of 2015, I met the first person I knew to have lost their child that way. In June of 2016, another friend's son was diagnosed only to have the cancer take him the following spring.

And then in May of 2017... it finally hit my home. My son. My firstborn.

I am no longer naive. It COULD (and DID) happen to my family. It did happen to so many people we met at clinic. And, yes, some of them lost their battles while we were there and in the years since. TOO MANY HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES, and they will continue to do so, sadly, unless and until we find a cure.
