On July 9th CureSearch is holding a walk to raise awareness and money for childhood cancer.  We need a cure for our children.  Did you know that childhood cancer is one of the lowest funded cancers?  Thats just not right.  Curesearch funds the lifesaving research of the Children's Oncology Group.  Im so excited that they are coming to Salt Lake so I can take part in this.  Im starting a team in honor of Skyler.  Team Skyler.  My goal is to get at least 20 people to walk with me and to raise at least $1,000.  If you would like to join you can go to my team page to register, or if you just want to donate you can also go to my team page and make a donation in Skyler's honor.
Thank you so much.  Again, Im really excited about this and really want to raise a good amount to help fund this research. Cancer is the #1 cause of death from disease in children. Every day, 35 children or nearly 2 classrooms are diagnosed with cancer, 7 of these children will not survive. 3 out of 5 children who survive cancer suffer devastating long-term side effects.  Its really scary to know that once we are done with cancer treatments, Skyler still may suffer horrible long-term side effects.  The only way to find new drugs that dont cause such nasty side effects is through research.  Thank you for your help and GO TEAM SKYLER!
