My Race for Haley
Jul 19, 2016



On May 21, 2015, my dear childhood friend’s ten year old niece, Haley, was diagnosed with High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and the journey with ALL began. I have joined TEAM HALEY in honor of my friend's niece. We are a close group of family and friends who are participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training program and we have a goal of raising $100,000 for LLS. As a part of TEAM HALEY it is my goal to raise $1,000. I am running a 10K in Haley’s honor!


Haley has endured hundreds of oral chemotherapy doses at home, over 100 rounds of intravenous chemotherapy, 1 body scan, 2 emergency room visits, 25 spinal tap chemotherapy injections, 5 blood transfusions, 2 surgeries and numerous inpatient admissions. 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 Marston, “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!!!!"


The battle against blood cancers is far from won. Despite progress, more than one third of blood cancer patients sadly do not survive 5 years after their diagnosis. More funding is needed to advance research and help save more lives. 


I am fighting for Haley and other blood cancer patients! I want Haley to know that I’ve done everything I 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.
