My Story

Erin was diagnosed with Hepatocellular Carcinoma just after her 15th birthday. She underwent multiple rounds of chemotherapy, a liver transplant, 2 courses of Radiation Therapy and multiple compassionate care treatment regimens. She died at the age of 17 in June 2000. She was a remarkable young woman with a huge, compassionate heart and often commented on how sad it was to see so many young children undergoing cancer treatments. Her dying wish was for her family to continue to help kids like her and find a way to end pediatric cancer. We are getting closer and closer every day to finding cures for so many pediatric cancers, but need resources and an awareness of how much these kids fight and struggle to survive!

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
