Welcome to Marisa's Fundraising Page

My niece was diagnosed with Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on March 3, 2016 and was immediately taken to Lurie Children's Hospital. She is currently being treated at Lurie Children's and is thankfully in remission. Her, her parents, and baby brother have spent many days and nights there. To say they are thankful (along with the rest of the family and friends) for Lurie Children's would be putting it lightly.

Please consider making a difference in the lives of nearly 200,000 patients treated at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospitaeach year. Support my efforts for the 2017 Move for the Kids 5K Walk/Run by making a gift today. Every dollar raised means a brighter and healthier future for our children.

Here are just a few ways your donations could help:

$35 can provide a comfort item for a premature infant to ensure the smallest and most fragile babies heal and grow faster.

$60 can help provide inpatient entertainment and distractions to help patients reduce stress and have fun while undergoing treatment.

$120 can help provide small lab supplies for one of the hospital's clinical trials to ensure our children have access to the latest treatments and therapies.

$240 can help provide supplies for the Lurie Children's classroom so that children in the hospital can continue their education.

All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children's Foundation.

On behalf of the patients and families of Lurie Children's, thank you for your support!
