Every three minutes, somewhere in the world, a family receives the devastating news that their child has cancer. While many children survive, the treatment options are harsh and outdated. The long-term effects of current therapies can create severe, life-threatening complications, and I couldn’t stand idly by.
This is the driving force behind why we started our non-profit organization, RAAM 21, to help fund the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s childhood cancer treatment research program. Research requires money, and I can’t think of a more exhilarating way to raise funds than the Race Across America.
