We are so thankful to everyone who came out on Saturday to our 4th Annual Celebration of Life event!
We successfully raised $20,000 this year!
Thank you to the 2007 soccer players (and their parents) from the Fishtown Rowdies, 1776 United FC, Philadelphia Union youth academy team and VE Gunners for their participation in the 2018 soccer friendly! What a talented group of players!
Thank you to our board of directors, who go above and beyond to ensure this day runs smoothly.
A special thank you to the ASHS Mini-THON and AJHS student volunteers, as well as our friends and family who volunteered their time throughout the day!
Thank you to Kendra Scott for hosting a trunk show at the event!
Thank you to Kelly Goldin, our child life specialist from CHOP’s Palliative Care Team and Charles Keller, our research partner from The Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute for graciously speaking at our event and letting our supporters know exactly where all the money raised has been going.
We hope to see you all next year!
I included this picture of Shane to announce the money raised. I’ve used it before, as it is one of my favorite memories of him.
We were in CHOP for an overnight chemo session and the nurses had just announced we could leave for the beach. At the same time, a goal was scored in the World Cup games in 2014, which we were watching. Days before we had received the results of Shane’s scans after 2 months of treatment. His tumors had disappeared and our family was in the greatest spirits!
I can’t help, but think Shane is proud of the legacy he has left and the future it holds for children diagnosed with these high risk cancers.
Thank you so much for all your support!
