I've pledged to play games and raise funds for kids at KU Pediatrics.
Over the past few years, I've been able to participate in this marathon to help kids in need. This was originally inspired to just simply help others, but has become personal to me in so many ways. None more than my cousin, who at age 2 was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. After seeing and hearing the things her family had to go through, I wanted to make a difference for families going through that. I don't want others to be worrying about the life of their child, only to have the added stress of "I can't pay for that". That doesn't sit well with me.
So, this marathon is something that now, as a parent, hits different. I see my daughter and am so grateful she is healthy and happy because a lot of parents don't have that. Including, as of this year, a friend I grew up with has a son going through cancer treatments. If you are willing to help these families who are facing things like birth defects, life-changing illness, cancer, and so many other hurdles just know that it is beyond appreciated from both myself, as well as the family members.
