Welcome to Team Believe!
Hi, I'm Maisy. I'm trying to raise money for Hope & Heroes Children's Cancer Fund. This is important to me because I had Leukemia when I was little and I was treated at Columbia Presbyterian. I want to help other kids, like me, who have cancer now and make them all survivors. I know it is hard and, I think, every little bit helps.
Here is some more info about the cause:
Childhood cancers are the #1 disease killer of children - more than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and pediatric AIDS combined. This year I am teaming up with the 7th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Sunday, May 22nd, 2016 to support children with cancer in our community. With your help, Hope & Heroes can continue supporting the exemplary care and cutting edge research conducted at the Herbert Irving Child & Adolescent Oncology Center (HICAOC) at Columbia University Medical Center.
HICAOC is one of the largest and most distinguished pediatric oncology programs in the United States. The professional staff of the HICAOC provides compassionate care to children and adolescents not only throughout the New York tri-state area, but serves as a referral center for patients across the country and abroad. Their mission is profound in scope. They do not turn anyone in need away?and in the current climate of government, hospital and insurance funding, programs such as these cannot be sustained without ongoing philanthropy.
Sunday, May 22nd, some of my friends and I will walk to show our support to helping children's cancer. Last year we made over $3,000 fundraising for the same walk. This year I think we can do even more!
Please consider supporting Hope & Heroes Children's Cancer Fund by making a donation today. Your donation is tax-deductible and will truly make a difference in the lives of other kids.
Thank you ahead of time for your support!
