Hello there! My name is Dreana and I'm a 24 year old grad student currently taking a gap year between finishing my MS and starting my PhD. I'm asking for your help to raise money for This Star Won't Go Out, a nonprofit founded in memory of Esther Earl. In honor of what would have been Esther's 24th birthday coming up on August 3rd, I'm walking 24 miles between now and August 3rd. This doubles as a kick in my butt to get back in shape, too. TSWGO does amazing work providing funds to families of kids with cancer so that they can spend more time together and less time stressing over the financial burdens of medical care. As someone who spent a lot of her childhood and teen years in the hospital, I can tell you from personal experience exactly how much of a difference easing that financial burden makes. Fun family time can make such a positive, emotionally healing impact.
Can't donate right now? That's okay! Sharing the link and telling others about This Star Won't Go Out is a great way to help without spending a penny.
