I am so excited to be participating in CHOC's first-ever Virtual Walk in the Park in early 2021 to raise funds for CHOC Children's Hospital!
My son, Carter, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 2, 2015 one month before his 5th birthday, forever changing our lives. He underwent chemotherapy treatments at CHOC for 21 months at CHOC 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.
We are forever grateful for the care CHOC provided us during treatment. Carter never feared going to the hosptial and the staff and facilities made our stays the best we could have hoped for during one of the scariest times of our lives. We love to give back and show our appreciation to this incredible hospital while honoring our son through our participation in the CHOC Walk in the Park.
Although COVID-19 has changed life as we know it, one thing remains the same: children are still counting on CHOC and supporters like us to help them get better. As a non-profit organization, CHOC relies on community generosity to provide leading-edge care for infants, children and adolescents close to home. Your donation can provide vital resources to patients and families as they face today’s crisis.
