Growing up is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I will fight so everyone can benefit from this natural right.

I always grew up seeing things happen that did not seem fair to me, like my mother's abrupt illness which subsequently forced us to move to a different country for a while. These series of events made me more empathetic to the lives of other people; I wanted a fair chance for everyone above all else because I didn't have one. With Thon we have the chance to make it so that every child has the same chance to grow up and chase their dreams, it may not happen over night, but even if there is just a chance to make this dream a reality, we have to go full throttle dancing till it happens--all in hopes of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.

I think empathy is what we need to increase our passion for this goal. We need to get out of our comfort zone and realize that people are responsible for each other. We can make one another's dreams come true."Every man for himself " will not be our motto today. I will raise money for Thon to support the mutual dream I share with many others out there. It is my hope that one day, every child will have the opportunity to live out their dreams. 

Since 1977, THON has raised over $157 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and fund critical research to take our fight beyond central Pennsylvania and spread hope around the world. We work year-round to provide both financial and emotional support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone. 

I truly appreciate any support you provide, either by making a donation or by sharing my page on social media to spread THON’s mission.
