I am so excited to be participating in CHOC Walk's 30th anniversary event - CHOC Adventure in the Park presented by the Disneyland® Resort to raise funds for CHOC!

Even as the pandemic continues to linger, and has changed our world, one thing remains unchanged: children still count on CHOC to help them get better. Which is why this year’s event will be reimagined so we can once again join together as a community.


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 30th anniversary celebration of the CHOC Adventure in the Park. The fundraising efforts of this event will 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.
