Please join us in the fight to find a "kure" by contributing to our team in honor of Mary Sullivan - Survivor, Pioneer, Preschool Teacher. Twenty years ago, at age 2, Mary was diagnosed with leukemia. Bravely battling the disease, she underwent procedures, treatments, and side effects, never complaining or questioning. At age 10, Mary went from patient to pioneer by participating in the Phase 1 clinical trial for Gleevec, the very first targeted therapy. After years of being 100% positive for leukemia, Mary went into complete remission after only 8 months on the Gleevec. She is a testimony to the power of research and innovation. Today, Mary continues to take Gleevec and is now thriving at age 23, working in a fulfilling career as a preschool teacher.
Thanks for reading the story! We hope you will join us in raising money for research, so that we can make more stories like Mary's a reality.
