Moms Making Miracles

Raising Money and Awareness for Pediatric Cancer Research
Breast Cancer Ribbon

In 2005 my son was a typical fifteen year old teenager playing on a high school football team. While working out he had a strange cough and was having trouble breathing. At first it was thought he had allergies or asthma. An x-ray revealed a massive tumor in his chest. He was diagnosed with a medialstinal mass that was Stage III Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The diagnosis was a shock since he was otherwise asymptomatic despite being the picture of health. Fortunately, this story has a happy ending.

Due to the brilliant work of Dr. Tanya Trippett, a pediatric oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital, my son is officially cured having made it through five years of remission, and his future is bright. As a result of my son’s successful story, and a first hand observation of families not so fortunate, this organization was formed to raise money and awareness to find a cure for pediatric cancer. All proceeds raised go directly to research doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Pediatrics.

I call upon you to be a part of saving the lives of our children. Through your donations and awareness, funding from the private and public sectors can help us reach our goal. Do not underestimate the power of Moms. We can make a difference if we are educated and involved. I hope you will join us in our fight to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
