My name is Sabrina Simpson and I am currently a graduating senior at Boston University. I have been fundraising for AICR since 2011, and raising money for cancer research since I was 4 years old. What started out as annual birthday donations to Saint Jude's Children Hospital in Austin, Texas has evolved into an annual fundraising challenge, spanning multiple countries and locations.
We all know someone whose life has been influenced in some way by cancer. With the progression of modern science, technology and research I believe that it is possible to find a cure within my generations lifetime. But this progression is not without obstacles. As a premed student who has worked in the field of cancer research, I know firsthand how expensive and painstakingly slow developing treatments for cancer can be. This is why we need to come together to not only raise funds for this type of research to go forwards, but also to raise awareness for those who have been effected and those that will be effected.
