Welcome to Our Team Page
In April 2014, Evie was diagnosed with cancer. It's every parents worst nightmare and we were living it. Over the next 2.5 years, Evie had intensive chemotherapy, she had many dozens of procedures, she had multiple hospital stays, including having to miss her 7th birthday party because she was in the hospital that week. But we are the extremely lucky ones, because Evie responded well to treatment and is now "cancer-free!"
Memorial Sloan Kettering became our family and took amazing care of our daughter. But more importantly, MSK developed the drugs that cured our daughter and thousands of other kids and allowed all these children to have their lives back.
There is never a day that goes by that we don't think about how fortunate we are to get to watch Evie grow up. If it weren't for the cancer research done over the past several decades, our Evie wouldn't be with us today.
But there are so many families that are not as fortunate, and even in the best cases, the treatments are hard and the side effects can be brutal. We have seen first-hand so many things that no one and especially no little kid should have to endure. We need to do more to find better and more effective treatmnts for all children with cancer, so they can get back to being kids and all their families can get to watch them grow up.

CANCER IS HARD ON KIDS
Cancer can be especially difficult for young patients. Today, doctors and researchers at MSK aim to develop more effective therapies for children going through treatment. This brings us one step closer to stopping the disease and letting kids return to their lives outside of a hospital.
