Walk with Sally is a non profit organization that aims to help kiddos who are impacted by cancer, whether it be themselves or a loved one who is impacted by cancer. This was so close to my heart, as my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer my sophomore year of high school. I was confused and didn’t understand much and wish I had someone who wasn’t in my direct family, to help. Someone to coach me through the tough stuff. My mom fought her battle and became a breast cancer survivor 💕
November 21st, 2017 is when I was matched with my mentee through Walk with Sally.
Madison is a vibrant and very athletic young girl who is hilarious and going through a lot. She had watched her father have seizures as he battled with his first cancer but then won his fight and went into remission. He had been diagnosed with a new cancer, undifferentiated sarcoma (a rare and fast growing cancer) in July, just 4 months before we matched.
Madison and her brother Luke, are honestly the funniest and sweetest kids. They watched their dad fight and on March 29,2019, Erik became their angel.
His gorgeous and strong wife Ronnie wanted to honor Erik and his legacy by providing hope and support to children and their families who are also impacted by cancer. A woman on a mission to go above and beyond and help those who are going through similar situations.
I’m honored to know the Ruggiero-Adrid family.
And on that note, how you can help❤️
We are starting a fundraiser to make Ronnie’s wish come true and to help honor Erik’s life
If you are able to and can, we ask that you donate.
Any little bit helps, donations at a $1 still help!
If you are able to donate more and wish to we would like to ask those that can, to donate $10 .
Thank you for taking this time to help a family dear to my heart, who is trying to help those going through the same thing and giving back.
Ronnie, you are not in this alone , we are Madi’s warriors ❤️
