To all my friends, family and fellow philanthropic givers, thank you for taking the first step and clicking on my link! You have arrived at my personal fundraising page, all proceeds will benefit the Pediatric Department, at City of Hope.
As many of you know, I hold City of Hope near and dear to my heart because of my personal story. My journey in pediatric hospitals started years ago, when I was almost 2 years old. Those photos to the left are of me, on full life support, fighting for my life. I had over 125 chest x-rays, a medical team of 10+ doctors on my case, and endured 25 chest tubes, over 2 months in PICU. Medical treatment has come light-years since my early hospital days in 1989, and it’s because of people like you, donating to research hospitals, who are making ground breaking discoveries.
My personal medical journey has been a long one, but it has ignited my passion to be a part of City of Hope, who is pioneering their way to a better tomorrow. Recently, I have joined the board for City of Hope’s Emerging Leaders Committee. This committee is comprised of likeminded individuals, developing new innovative ways to fundraise and raise awareness for City of Hope.
From now, until August 1st, I have made the pledge to raise awareness to COH, and seek donations on behalf of the Pediatric Department. Please consider joining me, even if you only have $10 to donate, every single dollar will help a child out there fighting for their life. As we continue this journey, every dollar donated provides hope, not only to patients and families, but future generations. We commend you for your support!
