In 2010, Kurt & Kelly Knotts lost their baby daughter Jamie to a rare, aggressive liver cancer. The care they received at Connecticut Children's Medical Center was beyond their imagination. The love and energy surrounding baby Jamie was turned from tragedy into hope for children and families in Southern New England. Jamie's Run, Inc. has donated over $150,000 for Dr. Michael Isakoff's Pediatric Clinical Trials and the Hematology/Oncology Family Assistance Fund over the past 6 years.
Your tax-deductible donation directly affects families and research right here, right now in Connecticut. Thank you for your support!
