I have decided to participate in my third St. Jude half marathon as a St. Jude Hero. My fundraising efforts will directly support the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to find cures and save the lives of children fighting cancer and other deadly diseases, and I am asking for your help!

So many of us have had cancer strike a family member or friend. To me it is so much more devasting when that person is a child. As a middle school teacher in Memphis, I have had a few of my students find themselves as patients at St. Jude. Alaycia Salter was a lovely young lady who lost her battle two years ago. I think of her often and now, as a St. Jude Hero, I hope that my efforts will help find a cure to save children just like Alaycia. And I hope that you will make a donation to support my efforts for St. Jude.

Here is a little more background information about St. Jude:

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, is one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers. Children from all 50 states and from around the world have come through the doors of St. Jude for treatment, and thousands more around the world have benefited from the research conducted at St. Jude - research that is shared freely with the global medical community. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance. No child is denied treatment because of a family's inability to pay.

St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric cancer treatment and research facility. Discoveries made by St. Jude have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.

Danny Thomas believed that “no child should die in the dawn of life.”

Thanks for helping me reach my goal for the kids of St. Jude!
