Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia is the most common childhood cancer. Progressing quickly, ALL generates immature blood cells, which crowd out the healthy blood cells on which the body depends. It is estimated that there will be over 6,000 new cases of ALL in the United States in 2014 alone. While survival rates for childhood ALL are increasing, we will not stop researching or fundraising until it reaches 100%. By raising awareness and money, we can work together towards this goal. Above is an article that the St. Baldrick’s Foundation posted about Chloe. Diagnosed with ALL at age 6, Chloe has endured many obstacles and struggles over the past few years. Now 8 years old, her cancer is in remission. Chloe’s positivity and strength are an inspiration to us all. As her mother proudly states, “Chloe is a survivor, not a victim.” Let’s walk to the end of cancer.
