2021 Annual Walk


Our lives were turned upside down in December when one of our three daughters, Amani, was diagnosed with Leukemia. Unsurprisingly, it has defined our lives since then. 

We're so grateful for the medical care that Amani has been receiving at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.  

To give back in a small way and to indirectly support other families similarly afflicted, we decided to join Hope and Heroes to help raise funds for research to end childhood cancer. 

Join Team Amani and help us reach our goal. 

With love and appreciation, 

Hoda and Mostafa, 

On behalf of Team Amani

Ending childhood cancer and blood disorders is possible, TOGETHER. That’s why we’ve formed a team and are participating together -- from wherever we are -- in the 11th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Sunday, September 26, 2021, and that’s why we need your help.

Hope & Heroes funds the life-saving work on childhood cancer and blood disorders at Columbia University Irving Medical Center – including cutting-edge research, the newest and most advanced treatments, support for families, and care that always puts children first. Columbia is home to the largest and most comprehensive pediatric oncology & blood disorder programs in the country, treating over 1,500 patients a year with high-quality, compassionate care.

Funding from Hope & Heroes also ensures that every child, regardless of their ability to pay, gets the very best care.

That is why we’ve formed a Walk Team this year, and why we’re asking you for your support.

DONATE TODAY using the link and make a difference. If you’re as passionate as we are about ending childhood cancer, you can also join my team!

Thank you again. Together we will help children today and save lives tomorrow.  Together, we can end childhood cancer.
