On February 8, 2016, four words changed our lives forever; "your daughter has cancer".  Instantly our lives were split into the "befores" and the "afters".

 

Samantha was just weeks shy of her 14th birthday when she was diagnosed with high risk Pre-B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and to say that it rocked our world would be the understatement of the century.  Those words are not words that are easily comprehensible.  No sooner did they deliver the news, did we start walking down the path of our new life.  I honestly do not remember the moment when Sam was told but I do remember the agonizing pain that ripped through me, all the way down to my soul.  It was unlike any other pain I have ever felt.  She was immediately admitted to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and within a few hours she had a blood transfusion and a platelet transfusion.  Less that 24 hours later she had a PICC line placed her right arm and they had started her first dose of chemotherapy.  She stayed in the hospital for 8 days.

 

After the initial fog lifted, I had made a promise to not let her diagnosis be in vain.  I knew that I needed to do everything in my power to try to prevent any more parents from having to hear those words.  That lead me to LLS Light the Night Walk in September 2016.  I didn't have any expectations but we had an outpouring of love and support and we managed to raise over $9000.00 and had 101 registered walkers.  I knew I was on to something.  I had found my mission.

 

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the world's largest organization dedicated to finding a cure for blood cancers and it is something that I so need to be a part of, which is why I very humbly accepted the challenge to run for their Woman of the Year Campaign.  This is a prestigious 10 week fundraising campaign and for every dollar I raise, is a vote for me, but more importantly, is a step further on the path of finding a cure.

 

I not only run this campaign for my daughter Sam, who is my inspiration and my reason to fight but also for a few other kids that have had a profound impact on my life.  I run for Samantha, age 13 at the time of diagnosis, high risk ALL, for Lauren Butler, age 14 at the time of diagnosis, high risk ALL, Dane Stromsborg, age 4 at the time of diagnosis high risk ALL , for Jack Cassidy, age 2 at the time of diagnosis, Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis.  I also run in memory of Cash van Jameson, age 18 months at the time of diagnosis, PNET, inoperable brain tumor and for Laiken Kenwood, age 9 at the diagnosis, high risk ALL.

 

Pediatric cancers only receive less than 4% of the national budget for research.  Fewer than 5 drugs have been developed since 1980 that are strictly for children.  My daughter is taking medicines that are as old as I am and were developed for adults.  Something needs to change.  It is time we step up and raise our standards by raising our voices.  Its time to DEFY THE VERDICT!

 

I very humbly and graciously ask for your support during my mission.  Thank you for your time and your consideration.

Sheri Stewart
