Dear Friends and Family,
Imagine, if you can, you have just heard four of the most devastating words a parent could ever hear, “your child has cancer.” Imagine the emotional toll those four words would inflict. The fear and uncertainty of what’s to come as you begin the fight for your child’s life. Questions about the future are flooding your mind. If you have other children, how are they going to cope, how am I going to support them as well? Is my health insurance coverage good enough, will I be able to work and still meet the needs of my child? What about my mortgage, my electricity, my groceries? If we lose the house, where will we go? Will I have to choose between electricity for the month or gas money to get my child to and from treatment. Will I have to count change to purchase that gas? Sadly, this is the reality that many of the families right here IN OUR OWN COMMUNITY are facing every day.
If you are running or just making a donation thank you for supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Heroes for Hope. Your donation, no matter what size will make an impact on children’s lives.
“You’re going to make a difference. A lot of times it won’t be huge, it won’t visible even. But it will matter just the same.” – Commissioner James Gordon
