Welcome to Rebekah's Personal Page
I have been a pediatric oncology nurse for most of my adult life. Watching children go through treatment is hard. As a mother myself, I want to jump in and fix it. Ease their pain. Make it go away. Childhood cancer doesn't discriminate. It has no borders. It is a cruel reality that too many families have to face. You see, the face of childhood cancer is not the cute, smiling, baldheaded kids you see on tv. It is relentless chemo, needlesticks and lumbar puctures. Childhood cancers only receive 4% of federal funding. 4%!!! CURE Childhood Cancer is in the race to save childhood dreams. CURE is dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through funding targeted research while supporting patients and their families. Recently, they committed $4.5 million to fund some of the most innovative research being done today.
I have joined Team Robert the Great for Lauren's Run on April 29. Robert is a little boy who holds a special place in my heart. I have watched him fight leukemia for most of his young life. During my radiation therapy it was Robert who told ME to "Be brave". He has always been a hero to me and now it's my turn to give back.
