Kyler's Super Trooper Mama
I run in honor of my late son Kyler, my joy, my heart, my bestest boy. I run because post brain surgery, he could not. Yet somehow it never slowed him down in living his life to the fullest. I run to keep his memory alive. I run in hope that one day no family will have to suffer the way mine did. I run to find a cure. I run to give back to the hospital that cared for not only my son, but for my entire family as well. I run to feel Kyler's light and love with me.. He taught us all how to be real Super Troopers.
On July 25, 2019, I will participate in the Young Associates Board’s (YAB) 17th annual Run for Gus 5K Run/1 Mile Walk, which raises funds to advance research and support services at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for patients with brain tumors.
Pediatric brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children and are fatal for almost half of those diagnosed. Yet, only $1 million is given annually for pediatric brain tumor research by government agencies. YAB has raised more than $1.5 million to date to further this lifesaving cause.
Please support my efforts by making a gift today! Any amount will make a difference, and all donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children’s Foundation.
With your help, more children battling brain tumors can receive the best healthcare possible and the opportunity to reach their greatest potential. Thank you!
