You fought so damn hard. You are my forever hero.

My Story

17 Aug 2021

Why? For David. Because no one fought harder and lived every second of their life to the fullest. He is my forever hero.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is recognized every September by childhood cancer organizations around the world.

I'm taking part with Zebra Technologies and Great Cycle Challenge USA to raise money to give kids a brighter future. The aim is to raise as much as possible for Pediatric Cancer Research, which holds a big place in my heart.

• About 1 in 285 children will develop cancer before the age of 20.

• In the United States, 46 children per day or 16,850 children per year in the are expected to be diagnosed with cancer.

• Worldwide, about 400,000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer each year.

• Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children. Worldwide, 100,000 children lose their lives every year to

cancer.

• Since 1980, only four drugs have been approved in the first instance for use in children. This is compared with hundreds of drugs that

have been developed specifically for adults only.

• The average cost associated with childhood cancer in 2018 was $833,000 for one child for medical costs and lost parental wages.

• Compared with the average stay among children and adolescents, those for cancer care were more than twice as expensive ($17,500

compared with $8,500 per stay) and about two days longer than the typical stay (6.4 versus 4.5 days). Pediatric cancer stays were also

more expensive ($17,500 versus $12,100), but not any longer than adult cancer stays.

Your support will change lives

Peace & Love,
