TJ and Sloane's Half Marathon for Haley
Aug 11, 2016



On May 21, 2015, our good friends’ ten year old daughter, Haley, was diagnosed with High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and the journey with ALL began. We have joined TEAM HALEY. We are a group of family and friends who are participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training program and we have a goal of raising $100,000 for research for childhood leukemia. We will be doing the Las Vegas Half Marathon in Haley's honor and will be running alongside Haley's parents Mike and Kressent. Haley and Karys will be on the sidelines cheering us on! 


Haley has endured hundreds of oral chemotherapy doses at home, over 100 rounds of intravenous chemotherapy, 25 spinal tap chemotherapy injections, 5 blood transfusions, and spent over 70 days in the hospital. She endured hair loss twice, weight gain and weight loss. Haley is now in the maintenance phase of treatment which lasts for two years and includes oral chemotherapy daily and chemotherapy through her port once a month at the clinic.




Thanks to organizations like LLS who fund groundbreaking research, the survival rate for children with ALL increased from less than 5% in the 1960’s to a survival rate of over 92% today. To quote Haley’s Mom, Kressent: “Now 92% sounds pretty good, right? However, when it's your child and there is an 8% chance that they may not survive, I for one, do not like that. I want to live in a world where I can say "there is a 100% cure rate for childhood cancer!!!!"


ALL is the most common cancer in children. Many children can be cured with intensive multi-drug treatments, but these can have debilitating side effects. More effective and less toxic therapies are urgently needed for patients of all ages. 


We are fighting for Haley and other blood cancer patients! We want Haley to know that we’ve done everything we can to help find a cure for childhood leukemia.


Every dollar makes a difference! Thank you for your support!!


Here is a short video of Haley’s journey with ALL:
