Time to Fly 2017

Remembering Sierra

 

It's Time to Fly!  

Every school day, 46 kids are diagnosed with cancer. That’s more than the size of two classrooms.  We think one child diagnosed with cancer is one child too many.

 

My 17 year old daughter Sierra passed away on August 24th 2007 from a very aggressive form of Cancer called Soft Tissue Sarcoma. No one should have to hear the words "your child has Cancer", no one should have to hear the words "there is nothing more we can do". These are the words I heard and these are the words that will always haunt me.

That’s why we as a team are joining the race against childhood cancer by participating in Time to Fly at Phalen Park in St. Paul, Minnesota on September 9th. We want to help raise money to invest in leading-edge research, create better treatments and therapies and ultimately, a find cure for childhood cancer. Every dollar matters. Please support our team in our fight against this terrible disease. 

You can help us by donating today or joining us on race day.

 

Your impact

Just within the past few years, funds from Children's Cancer Research Fund have helped researchers make progress toward:

      **Creating new drugs to treat graft-versus-host disease after a bone marrow transplant. Graft-versus-host disease is the leading cause of death in transplant patients.

**Understanding the genetic risks of Hodgkin lymphoma to improve treatment and the long term side-effects that affect these patients.

**Improving leukemia treatment through new therapies. Leukemia is the most common form of childhood cancer.

...And much more

 

Whatever you can give truly helps create a cancer free tomorrow for our children. Thank you for your support!
