This September, I am extremely excited to be taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!
This cause hits my heart hard. Two children in my town have passed from cancer over the years that I've been here. And then on July 9, 2019 at 3:14pm, I got a text that literally stopped me cold. One of my closest friends from college told us that her daughter had been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Please see Aubrey's story below:
"Aubrey was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in the summer of 2019. Aubrey didn't let cancer or chemotherapy limit her goals of starting middle school on time, achieving high honors, or continuing to dance competitively. When her Hodgkin's relapsed nearly a year later, Aubrey "Embraced the Journey'' to fight tough and fight strong through surgery, additional chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, and radiation therapy. Aubrey conquered cancer twice all while maintaining a sense of humor, a positive attitude and her infectious smile. Today, Aubrey is healthy and enjoys her passions of dance and art. She aspires to become a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner in the future so that she can help other kids beat cancer too!"
Over 15,700 children are diagnosed with cancer every year. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.
I only hope my challenge to help kids like Aubrey will allow the Children's Cancer Research Fund to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.
Please consider supporting me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.
Your support will change little lives.
Much love, MaryBeth
