Every year, I celebrate my birthday by participating in the Light the Night Walk. Always within a few days of my bday, this event has provided me a perfect and meaningful way to recognize the true gift that each birthday brings. In some ways, I suppose this year is different or special, because this year, I am celebrating my 1st birthday as a MOM!!

Every year, I walk in memory of my little brother, Ryan, who lost his battle with leukemia at the age of 13, and who I miss and think of every single day. I also walk in honor of my many friends and family who have been touched by cancer. But THIS year, I also walk because I am DETERMINED to do all that I can to ensure my daughter never has to endure what Ryan did--not as a child, an adult, or ever. 

Every year, I also walk for HOPE--and this year, I will be walking with specific research studies in mind, smiling at the thought of certain patients I've come to know celebrating their next birthday or raising young families. I've been incredibly fortunate to work at renowned pediatric research-intensive institutions, and take great pride in supporting the innovations underway at the Medical University of South Carolina, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Texas Children's Hospital and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

I hope you will support my reasons for participating in this event, and/or will consider donating to this cause as my 'birthday present'!!! I couldn't imagine a better gift, and of course, I would be honored to add to my t-shirt any name you send along with your donation.

Simply put, your support means everything to me.

Thank you for helping me celebrate my 1st birthday as Dylan's "Mamamama"!! :)

Love,

Sarah
