I will be stripping to my skivvies and running around (holy moly) in the frigid temps this February, all in an effort to raise funds so kids like my nephew Jack Burke can grow up happy and healthy. Jack is the kind of kid that immediately becomes your best friend - such a character, a great big brother and just happy as can be.
...but Jack's journey is a tough one. He was diagnosed with NF (neurofibromatosis) at two-years-old and, along with other tumors, he has a plexiform neurofibroma (a complex tumor) just behind his left eye.
Last September, Doctors discovered a new tumor on his brain stem that needs immediate intervention. Jack just finished 48 weeks of chemotherapy. An 9-year-old going through chemo! Wow.
NO CHILD SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS, so I am running in my undies in the freezing cold because I will do whatever it takes, no matter how ridiculous, to help find a cure for NF!
Your donation, whether it be $5 or $500, will provide critical funding to the Children's Tumor Foundation and allow for clinical trials, treatments and ultimately the cure we desperately need.
I sincerely thank you, Jack thanks you, and the millions of families who will benefit from this effort thank you.
100% of donations go directly to the Children's Tumor Foundation.
