Below Alan shares a personal experience that lead him to get involved with CURE Childhood Cancer.
“Dayna and I lost our daughter, Hayley, to AML – an aggressive form of leukemia – in December 2004, two months shy of her 2nd birthday. Hayley’s struggle was a nine month battle that included over 200 days in the hospital, several intense chemotherapy regimens, total body irradiation, and a bone marrow transplant. Through it all, Hayley learned to walk, talk, and be a fun loving little girl with whom many a nurse and doctor fell in love. She inspired Dayna and me to continue to fight the good fight so that one day non-toxic treatments will CURE Childhood Cancer.”
