The Story

      When I was ten I was diagnosed with a type of bone cancer called Ewing Sarcoma. My two year experience battling cancer was not just an obstacle but it also changed my whole outlook on life. As a survivor, my experience made me want to dedicate a portion of my life giving back to the people and institutions that save childrens lives everyday and encourage others to join me. Throughout my school career I have been fundraising through bracelet sales, participating in walkathons, and encouraging fellow students to join me. If anyone was reluctant to join my cause, I encouraged them to raise awareness for something that is important to them. I was extremely surprised to see how many of my friends started participating in different charities and non-profit organizations. This is just a small step towards my future endeavors. I am an aspring philanthropist.

Our Goal

      There is nothing more important that I learned than the significance of continuous support whether its from family, friends, doctors or nurses. The Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a non-profit charity which raises money for research, state of the art equipment/instruments and parent/patient care for world-renowned doctors at the hospitals PCF supports. Every year I participate in the Pediatric Cancer Walkathon with a team that raises money for this amazing cause. This year I started my own team and my goal is to spread awareness and encourage as many people as possible to get involved in supporting and/ or donating for this great cause. This year our team is bigger and better and presumably our goal is substantially higher.  I cannot express my gratitude enough for the continuous support every year. Every single donation counts !
