Please help On My Team16 and myself #ClimbCancer.
On November 20th, 2021 I will be climbing 20 flights of stairs (338 steps to be exact), in the tallest building in downtown Syracuse, NY, the State Tower Building.
On November 20, 2021, it will be 4 years and 3 days since the day we heard the words "your child has cancer". I will never forget that day or the weekend as my husband and I tried to figure out how to tell our 11 year old son. The positive thing though throughout all of this was how lucky we were to live in an area where we have a local Children's hospital and pediatric oncology unit plus so many amazing local charities like On My Team 16 to get you through this journey. I first heard about On My Team 16 when my son was in the hospital for 2 weeks before Christmas (we got out on the 25th). Jordan wanted to bring Tyler Cavanaugh in to see my son to try to cheer him up since he had been in the hospital for so long. I couldn't believe that they were willing to do that for Connor. We didn't get to meet Tyler or Jordan that day since luckily we were discharged, but we soon found out all that On My Team 16 does for pediatric cancer patients and their families. Thankfully my son has been cancer free now for 3 years and we are happy to try to help On My Team 16's mission and help out other families.
If you can sponsor me today, I would greatly appreciate it. WE are making a difference in the lives of all those battling pediatric cancer! THANK YOU!
