I am so excited to be participating in the 2019 CHOC Walk in the Park at the Disneyland Resort on August 11th to raise funds for CHOC Children's Hospital!
We were inspired to participate by our friends, the Ankeny family. Their son Carter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 2, 2015, one month before his 5th birthday. He underwent chemotherapy treatments at CHOC for 21 months before finding out he relapsed on July 5, 2017, essentially starting over at day one of 3.5 years of treatment. On October 8, 2017
Carter passed away suddenly and shockingly due to a rare infection that occurred as a result of chemotherapy treatment. While his loss is devastating, Carter continues to inspire his friends and family to spread kindness every day, live life without fear, and to find a cure for cancer.
I am grateful for the care CHOC provided to the Ankeny family during Carter's treatment, and for the work they do for many, many other families with kids just like Carter.
The fundraising efforts of the CHOC Walk make an immediate impact on families going through the most challenging time in their lives. CHOC provides the highest level of care not only to patients, but to the siblings, parents, and extended family that make up their critical support teams.
