Welcome to My Page!
That girl on the left holding the dolphin is my best friend and sister Maria. Maria unfortunately passed away from brain cancer a little over four years ago. Ever since she passed, my family and I have been working with this organization which not only focuses on finding a cure for children fighting the same battle Maria fought, but also supports the families of the children receiving treatment. In May, I will be walking in honor of Maria knowing she will be looking down on me (and probably laughing when I most likely trip and fall ;)) at the Hope & Heroes walk. This organization is extremely important to me so it would mean so much if you donated to or joined Team Maria! Our team goal is to raise over $20,000 in which we were able to surpass this amount last year. From one dollar to one hundred, every penny counts so your donations are greatly appreciated! Thank you:)
You can either donate here on my page or on the Team Maria page down below!
I am thrilled to be a part of the 10th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Sunday, May 19th, 2019, at Pier 62/63 tosupport children with cancer and blood disorders and their families.
Hope & Heroes funds the life-saving work on childhood cancer and blood disorders at Columbia University Irving Medical Center – including cutting-edge research, 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 provides for over 40% of the Division’s budget including the newest & most advanced treatments, innovative research, comprehensive wellness for patients & survivors, and ensures that every child, regardless of their ability to pay, gets the very best care.
Over the last 10 years, the Hope & Heroes Walk has raised over $2.5 Million dollars to dramatically affect the lives of pediatric cancer & blood disorder patients and has shared the importance of this cause with thousands of people. With your help, we can ensure that every patient receives excellent care and that they, along with their family, feel supported from the day of diagnosis, throughout treatment, and beyond.
Donate today and help make a difference. Consider joining my team and walking with us! The Walk is an inspiring & fun day with incredible energy that brings together patients, survivors, families, friends, doctors, nurses, co-workers, and neighbors - it’s truly not to be missed.
Thank you again. Together we will help children today and save lives tomorrow.
