One More Year, One More Name

This year will mark my 5th year participating in the Run of Hope Seattle. Each year I fill out an "In Honor of" card, to wear during the race, with the names of all the people I have met and friends I have made who have had pediatric brain cancer. It seems like every year there is a new name to add. This year it is Jimmy, a 12 year-old boy who is currently undergoing treatment.

Jimmy should have spent his summer on the baseball field with his little league team and should be getting ready to start school with his friends instead of spending most of his days at the hospital.

This is  why I am still fighting. This is why Dr.Olson's research is so important. This is why it is imperative that we continue to fund research to find better treatments with fewer side effects. We can do this by contributing to the Run of Hope Seattle

So that kids like: Me, Ivy, Andy, Stephanie, Brooke, Gillian, Keaton, Max, Jack, Ben and Jimmy spend fewer days in the hospital and more days playing and hanging out with friends, going to school, being home with our families and doing all the other things kids do.

Please help  us by contributing to the 2015 Run of Hope Seattle!

The Run of Hope is: 
5k Run/3k walk
Sunday September 27th at 10 AM
