Let's step up the fight against childhood cancer! Learn More

Help us step up the fight against childhood cancer 

Two years ago this month, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a serious blood cancer that requires several rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. I was fortunate to be treated at Mayo Clinic, where I received the healthy cells of Texas A&M University student Jack Milligan through Be the Match, the national bone marrow donor registry. Today, I'm blessed to be cancer free.

It was a brutal fight back to wellness, and left me wondering how the 15,000-plus children and adolescents diagnosed with leukemia each year in the U.S. -- and their parents -- muster the strength to face down this monster. Adults undergoing treatment understand the process, know every painful poke is a necessary evil and reconcile the horrible side effects with, someday, remission. Children, especially the young ones, robbed of the ability to live their lives as, well, kids, do not.

That's why Jack and I once again will participate in the Run to Fight Children's Cancer, Saturday morning, March 10, 2018, on and around the campus of Grand Canyon University. Our Team One Day at a Time, so named because that's how we approached my battle, will help raise awareness of pediatric cancer and funds for better diagnostic tools and treatment options for children with cancer and to find, one day, a cure. The Run to Fight Children's Cancer, which benefits Children's Cancer Network and Phoenix Children's Hospital, has a 10K, 5K and cancer survivors walk, and is open to everyone. 

Won't you help us step up the fight against childhood cancer? Please register to walk with us during the 5K, tackle the 10K and/or contribute to our fundraising page. Together, we can bring pediatric cancer to its knees.

Hello family and friends, 

Thanks to all of you Team One Day at a Time raised $1.115 for the 2018 Run to Fight Children's Cancer! These funds will go to Children's Cancer Network and to Phoenix Children's Hospital to help Arizona children and their families navigate the very choppy waters of pediatric cancer diagnoses, treatments and recovery. Someday, soon, I hope, there will be a cure for this monster. Until then, thank you so much for contributing to this special cause. 

Love you,

Janie and Jack Magruder
