Team Believe is thrilled to be a part of the 8th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Sunday, May 21st, 2017 to support children with cancer and blood disorders and their families.
As most of you probably know, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at one and a half years. I went through chemo, and finished my treatments on June 30th 2004, the best birthday present I could give my mother (and my father but this isn't his birthday) I was supported and cared for throughout the time I was at the hospital. The doctors and nurses were so nice and helpful. I'd like to give back to the hospital for what they gave me; and help find a cure for childhood cancer, because nobody should have to deal with that.
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.
