I am so excited to be participating once again in the CHOC Walk in the Park at the Disneyland Resort on August 11th, 2019 to raise funds for CHOC Children's Hospital!
CHOC is the hospital where I was treated for my rhabdomyosarcoma and thanks to the efforts of the doctors, nurses, social workers, and all other staff, I am now able to say I have been cancer-free for almost 12 years! In fact, I will be hitting that milestone just four days before the CHOC Walk in the Park!! To celebrate such an amazing thing, I am choosing to walk with Team Timmaree Rocks for the tenth year in a row!
Timmaree and I both attended the same elementary school and were both diagnosed with the same type of tumor around the same time. We grew close in the hospital, even having a slumber party complete with nail polish and pizza! Timmaree was a strong fighter and a gentle soul, and in her memory I choose to live everyday appreciating the little things and treating every creature- big or small- with the endless kindness.
I ask that join me in raising money and awareness in the effort towards aiding families at CHOC that are going through something incredibly tough. With our help, we can ensure that CHOC is able to continue delivering the highest level of care possible.
Feel free to reach out to me, personally, if you would like to know more about my story and how CHOC did more for me and my family besides treating my cancer. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for contributing to my fundraiser page.
Even if you are unable to give much, just remember that every dollar counts and will go towards aiding kids fighting just like me and Timmaree fought.
