Welcome to My Personal Page
Support Team Believe!!!
At age 1 1/2, I was diagnoised with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Over 2+ years of trips to the oncology clinic, lots of hospital stays, chemotherapy, bone marrow aspirations, "sleepy juice", gross tasting medicine, Princess band-aids and a billion videos...I survived, but only with the help of the AMAZING doctors, nurses and teams at Columbia University. Today I am 17 years old, a junior in high school, preparing to apply to college later this year, and am grateful everyday for the full life I have ahead of me, with my family and friends. The staff at Columbia has given me the opportunity to live, and I would like to give them the ability to give other kids with cancer the same opportunity.
This May, I am thrilled to be a part of the 9th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Sunday the 20th to support children with cancer and blood disorders and their families. I really want more kids, like me, and their families be as lucky as me.
With your help, Hope & Heroes can continue supporting the patients, programs, and research at the Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology & Stem Cell Transplantation at Columbia University Medical Center. The Division, located at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, is one of the largest and most distinguished centers for children with cancer and blood disorders in the country. They are depending on us to make sure their unique programs are available to all the children they treat and that their scientists keep working until they find a cure.
Please give as generously as you can - or consider joining my team and walking with us. The Walk takes place at beautiful Pier 84 (West 44th St. at the Hudson River) and is an inspiring and fun day for the whole family.
Please do as much as you can, many thanks!!!
