Good vibes only! Wake up each morning with a smile! Keep on fighting!
It's been a crazy 2 years. We want to keep the momentum from Grace's House and GG's Angels going in 2020!!! Please join our walk team or donate in support of us to continue to give to The Valerie Fund to help kids that are fighting cancer and blood disorders.
Let's give you some more background on why we walk!
In April of 2018 after almost 2 years of symptoms a mass was discovered around my pituitary gland in the center of my brain. From that moment I went into several tests, scans, lumbar punctures, and blood draws over the next few weeks. I was diagnosed May 2, 2018 with Germinoma Brain Cancer and everything was so scary for me. The Valerie Fund helped me feel better with all of their therapists and support staff.
The Valerie Fund was not just amazing for me. It was also amazing for my family and friends.
The crew at the Valerie Fund is the best there is. Our first walk was at the beginning of my Chemo therapy in 2018. Since then I have come through 4 rounds of chemo and 24 rounds of Proton radiation. I am currently showing No Evidence of Disease (NED) and will continue to have scans every 3 months for a while and then for the rest of my life.
We have met so many beautiful people on this crazy journey. I have been able to benefit from all of the resources at the Valerie Fund. The school liaison came to school to explain what was going on to my teacher and friends which helped me feel more comfortable at school (and I wouldn't get so many questions). They helped with Vgo the robot to help me attend school from home, to helping my family navigate paperwork with school, to art therapy to help me process everything that was going on, to yoga and aromatherapy to help me feel better, and all the way to the amazing Camp Happy Times...The Valerie Fund has been there for me every step of the way. I see and feel the impact they have on so many lives everyday. They are truly amazing and I am so thankful for them. None of this would be possible without the amazing support from you!
This team continues to support the cause. I was able to represent all TVF kids at the 2019 State Of The Union address with the President and First Lady. I have been able to keep up advocacy in Trenton and Washington DC to continue to help fight pediatric cancer. Through my amazing Pop Pop plus the amazing staff at the main TVF office AND outstanding designers TVF had a designer show house in 2019...it was unbelievable and the good vibes from it were contagious. We are so honored and proud of the crew that made all of that happen. Again, it would not have been possible without the support of all of you! Thank you!
Let's keep it going!
