Taylor Haber | Vikes for the Fight

Teens Beating Cancer: One High Schooler's P.O.V.

Jan 15, 2019

 

Welcome to our fundraising page!

I’m so glad that you are considering to donate to “Vikes for the Fight.”

We want you to understand that any support you give, whether it be corporate or personal, large or small, goes to our one and singular goal: To fund research which provide better cures for the blood cancers which ravage our communities and families.

“Vikes for the Fight” has been touched by blood cancers, as we are sure many of you have.

Like so many of you, the struggle to find a cure hits us on a very personal level. In May of 2008, my grandmother, Carole Diamond, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. After a strenuous multi-year battle, her cancer was thankfully in remission.

Of course, when dealing with blood cancers, the battle is rarely that simple. Her cancer returned in late 2014 and even with the support of expert doctors, dear relatives, and long time friends, Carole Diamond passed away on January 23rd 2016. It was her 79th birthday.

Should you choose to support our cause, our team at “Vikes for the Fight” want you to understand that this cause is personal to us as well. We want more than anything, to never see the tragedies which have stricken our lives affect any other family.

This campaign hits close to home for all of us. It goes beyond family and feels more like responsibility to raise awareness and support for such a pressing cause.

Thanks for your time.

All the best,

Taylor Haber, Candidate for “Vikes for the Fight”
