I helped to raise money for childhood cancer research

I helped to raise money for childhood cancer research

I'm asking for your support as I do two things I’ve never done before.

1. Ride my bike 40 miles along the streets of NYC, while wearing a cape

2. Wear bike shorts … in public

Honestly, I’m not sure which terrifies me more!

I’m participating in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour on Sunday, May 3rd, along with 32,000 of my soon to be closest friends, as part of David’s Warriors, a St. Baldrick’s Foundation Hero Fund created to honor the life of David Heard. David would have turned 15 on May 2nd.

Before David died he said, "I am going to die because research has failed me." He asked his parents to raise money to find cures for neuroblastoma and for all cancers that hurt kids. David’s Warriors was created to honor the spirit in which he lived, embracing life until the very end!

Please support me with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation, a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U. S. government. Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. One child lost to cancer is one too many.

I became involved with St. Baldrick’s in 2003 because it seemed like the right thing to do. I had no personal connection to childhood cancer, thankfully. I stayed involved because of the kids and families I’ve had the opportunity to know. They have taken up a permanent residence in my heart.

I have the best job because I get to spend the bulk of my days talking with kids and families touched by childhood cancers. I celebrate with them, mourn with them and remain forever inspired by them. It’s a true honor to be able to do what I do. Some people think my work sounds sad and depressing. And some days it is. But not most. Spend a little bit of time with kids fighting cancer and you will see true heroes who remind you – as cliché as it sounds – to live life to the fullest.

On behalf of kids like David, Macie, Caroline, Justin, Annalise, Chase, Aaron, Joey, Arden, Austin, Teddy, Sarah, Luke, Jordan, Matthias, Emily, Avery, Grace, Alan, Georgia, Rex, Lauren, Sam, Hayden, Micah, Matthias, Mason, Will, and Daisy, to name a few, I thank you.
