Thank you so much for visiting my NYC ING MARATHON 2012 page. This is the first time I am running the New York City Marathon and I am looking forward to the challenge. I am very excited to be working with such an amazing organization that helps so many children.
The Children's Cancer & Blood Foundation supports children with cancer and blood disorders treated at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. CCBF has been accepted as a Community Charity partner for the ING New York City Marathon. CCBF is looking forward to supporting five runners who will be dedicating their marathon experience to supporting children with cancer and blood disorders! Your support enables us to provide comprehensive care to over 1,000 patients, including those who do not have adequate insurance coverage.
WHO WILL YOUR DONATION SUPPORT?
The Children's Cancer and Blood Foundation through its support of the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at New York Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center has set the standard for patient care for children with cancer and blood disorders since 1952. They are the oldest and largest charitable organization in the U.S. dedicated to the care of children with cancer and blood disorders. For two years running they have received a 4 star Charity Navigator rating.
The CCBF's mission is threefold:
"To support the comprehensive clinical care of children living with cancer and blood disorders.
"To foster research to help understand the causes of childhood cancer and blood disorders: and
"To sponsor the fellowship training of pediatricians of the subspeciality of pediatric hematology and oncology."
Please support my run and make a donation to help CCBF today and make an impact on the lives of children who suffer from cancer and blood disorders.
