We would love to have your support of an incredibly important organization, the Research Institute for Children at Children's Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. Proceeds from the Jazz Half Marathon, October 12, 2013, will help to support cancer research projects at the Research Institute for Children at Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. Also, proceeds from the race will provide assistance to the families of the cancer patients and help fund a cancer care at the hospital. Our daughter, Jeanne-Avery, was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in August 2009 and she participated in a clinical trial after she finished her chemotherapy until April 2011. She is took Interferon shots weekly in hopes that this drug will help the body recognize a cancer cell and attack it. This research money will be very helpful to her and the researchers.
We can promise that you are making a difference in the lives of all those affected by children’s cancer. Together, we can reach the day when every child with cancer is guaranteed a cure.
John, Chanda and Jeanne-Avery Chauvin
