Welcome to the Harrison Family Page
On July 2019, the Harrison family 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.
We run (or walk) to ensure all children affected by brain tumors have a chance to survive. We run because Lurie Children's is committed to treating patients, not tumors, and minimizing the long-term damaging side effects of brain tumor treatment. And we run for our special friends Angela and Crisanto, who were both treated for their brain tumors at Lurie Children's, and are now thriving following that treatment.
Please support our 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!
