This is my 3rd year, riding in the Great Cycle Challenge, and kids cancer is even closer to home...
I am dedicating this year's fundraising to 5 year old Allie, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Allie has some good days, many more not as good, and fights every day to wear her gorgeous smiles.
Join with me this year to KICK CANCERS BUTT, to give Allie and every kid the hope of a brighter tomorrow!

The Allie update:
Yesterday our girl started PT for her legs. She had a pretty good day today! I forgot to post her Valentines photo so you get two tonight!
Please pray her legs get stronger and that the pain goes away. Pray for her to tolerate the treatment and for total healing.
Thank you all so muchPosted 1 day ago

A letter from Allie's aunt Jennifer7 Feb 2024
Our sweet girl Allie has been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a battle that no child or family should go through. As we rally around Allie and her family during this challenging time, we're reaching out to our loved ones for support.
Leukemia has taken its toll on Allie and their family. She has had about a dozen blood transfusions and two anaphylactic reactions to the chemotherapy treatment which is vital to her successful recovery. She is in and out of the hospital fighting for her life. This has taken an emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial toll on this sweet family. Victoria and Trevor have been balancing working full-time, caring for their boys (who both have Autism Spectrum Disorder), and learning a whole new life that they were thrown into. Victoria and Trevor are spending the night with Allie at the hospital, going to work, caring for their boys, and then coming back to the hospital so Allie is never alone. However, this has taken a huge toll. But with your generosity, we aim to provide her with the strength, hope, and resources needed to overcome this relentless disease. The emotional and financial burden on Allie's family is immense, and we want to ensure they can focus on the fight against leukemia without the added worry of mounting medical bills and expenses.
Your donation will make a world of difference in Allie's journey toward recovery. Here's how your support can help:
Medical Expenses: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia treatment is an expensive and ongoing process. The average recovery time is about two years. And it may be longer due to Allie's life-threatening allergic reaction to the chemo. Your contributions will assist in covering medical bills, hospital stays, medications, and other necessary treatments.
Emotional Support: Fighting leukemia is not only a physical battle but an emotional one as well. Your donations will help Allie and her family access counseling and support services to navigate the emotional challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis. This includes counseling and support for Allie's brothers, who both are on the spectrum. This is critical for them to adjust to this new life, not being able to play with Allie, and the adjustments to having Victoria and Trevor go back and forth between the hospital and their home.
Quality of Life: Beyond medical needs, your generosity will contribute to enhancing Allie's overall quality of life. This includes nutritional support, alternative therapies, and other necessary treatments that can make a significant impact on her well-being.
No donation is too small, and every bit brings us one step closer to giving Allie the chance she deserves for a healthy and joyful future and leaving this cancer in the past. We believe in the power of community, love, prayers, and compassion to make a difference in Allie's life.
Please join us in this fight by donating and sharing this campaign. Let's surround Allie with the love and support she needs to triumph over leukemia. And PLEASE share this on your social media, in your workplaces, and among your own community.
Thank you for being a beacon of hope in Allie's journey to recovery.
With gratitude and love,
The Woods-Whatton FamilyPosted 14 days ago
