Welcome to My Personal Page
This year, I have the pleasure of running the TCS New York City Marathon in support of Hackensack Meridian Health through Tackle Kids Cancer. This program is a partnership of dedicated clinicians, researchers, corporate partners, and community supporters working to fund medical research to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
Pediatric cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease among children in the US and only 4% of cancer research dollars are allocated to pediatric cancer. Since 1980, fewer than 10 drugs have been developed for use in children with cancer. Only three (Teniposide and Clofarabine, and Unituxin for use in high-risk neuroblastoma) have been approved for use in children – with four new additional drugs recently approved for use by both adults and children.
Bottom line: More needs to be done to develop a cure, and the doctors at the Hackensack Children’s Cancer Institute are working tirelessly to find one. Regardless of the amount – every donation helps, so I sincerely appreciate any contribution you're able to make!
Thank you for your time and support! Looking forward to Nov 3rd and helping in the fight against pediatric cancer.
