BENEFITING: Children's Hospital Los Angeles
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2016
At the end of this summer, Parker, now 12, celebrated 5 years out from her last surgery and 4 years since her last chemo treatment. The amazing nurses at the CHLA Infusion Center invited Parker and all of us back to ring the new "end of treatment bell" and they all gathered to sing and officially celebrate in the clinic! It was an inspiring moment that none of us will forget and reminds us why we reach out to you each year for your support!
We have an amazing group of friends committed to racing in this event and 100% of funds raised go directly to Parker's wonderful, brilliant doctors at CHLA working to find better cures for all the kids. Over 28,000 kids each year live with a brain tumor diagnosis and we are committed to researching cures that support survivors and their quality of life.
This past year, we have been honored to support the CHLA Neuro-Oncology Visiting Professor Program which brings the world's most important neuro-scientists to CHLA to spend quality time with the entire team and to share their findings and research. The impact on improving survivorship and treatments is critical for the future of kids like Parker and we hope to continue this with your support!
