The Ocampo Family is READY FOR THE FIGHT! Are you?
Is a world without cancer possible? We believe it is. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society funds treatments that can save the lives, or extend the lives, of blood cancer patients. Every single donation helps fund research for breakthrough therapies. This is why we joined TEAM HALEY, a team of over 68 friends and family members who are raising funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of our friend’s daughter, Haley Marston. Haley was diagnosed with High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in May 2015. Haley has been fighting for her life for the past year, and she will continue her cancer treatments for the next two years. We are joining Haley in her fight and are raising funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help fund groundbreaking therapies for blood cancer patients.

 

Why Are We Fundraising?
Christine’s Mom, Corazon, was a blood cancer patient. She was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 1992, when Christine was a sophomore in college. At the time of her diagnosis, she was given less than 3 years to live. In 1992, myeloma was a rare form of blood cancer and very little progress had been made for treatment and a cure. This meant that Christine had to cope with the reality that her Mom might not live long enough to see her graduate from college, get married, or have children.

Fortunately, with God’s grace and with Corazon’s formidable strength, Corazon was able to see Christine graduate from college, get married and have two amazing children, Nina and Aidan. Nina and Aidan were the light of Corazon’s life, and they were the reason why she fought so hard to survive. She called them her “strong medicine”. In those fourteen years, Corazon was able to benefit from new chemotherapy treatments which extended her life beyond the initial 3-years that she was given when diagnosed. Without this life extension, Corazon would have missed out on the 8 years that she was able to spend with her strong medicine, Nina and Aidan.

Blood cancer patients are in desperate need of breakthrough treatments that can save or extend their lives. Sadly, more than 1/3 of blood cancer patients do not survive 5 years after diagnosis. We can change this. Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day.

 

Will you join our fight?
We are fighting for Haley Marston and we are fighting in honor of Christine’s Mom, Corazon. Will you join the fight? Together we can get closer to a world without blood cancer.

Cancer has nothing over us. We’ve got this!

 

With deepest gratitude...Paul, Christine, Nina and Aidan
