Welcome to Shannon's Fundraising Page!
My reason for riding is simple - no parent should have to bury their child, and no child should be taken from this earth when their life has barely begun. My whole life I've heard about the amazing things that Children's Hospital has accomplished, and I want to help. Please consider donating to this great cause. Every dollar helps!
I didn't write the summary below, but found it informative:
"From the birth of modern chemotherapy to the discovery that tumors need their own blood vessels to grow, Boston Children’s Hospital researchers don’t just improve cancer treatment—they introduce new chapters in cancer medicine.
Your partnership will fuel this quest by supporting talented and innovative young investigators dedicated to shaping a healthier future for children with cancer. These rising research stars are aggressively pursuing fresh approaches to outwit cancer: research to detect and disarm a tumor while it is still dormant, for example, or to develop drugs that precisely target metastatic cells, destroying them before they invade. Your support will advance such studies—and ultimately save children’s lives."
Support my ride, and support the hospital! Please make a gift today!
