Katie Broderick was a normal 2 ½ year old girl when a two year odyssey began one Saturday afternoon. In a span of a few hours she went from a simple chest x-ray to the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital Emergency Room with softball sized tumor surrounding her heart. She was diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Lymphoma and went on to begin a two-year cycle of chemotherapy. Today, Katie is now a nine-year-old 4th grader who proudly proclaims, “I beat cancer”.
Connor Robinson developed a dangerously fast heart rate at the age of 4 weeks. At the emergency room it was discovered that he had a baseball size tumor in his chest pushing on his heart. In addition, the tumor snaked downward along his spinal canal compressing the cord. Thankfully the skilled surgeons at Sloane Kettering were able to remove the entire Neuroblastoma Tumor and he is now an active 3rd grade sports enthusiast.
Katie and Connor are sponsoring SPRING BUZZ CUT WITH MURRAY CANCER SURVIVORS in order to honor and support Pediatric Cancer Research. They both are acutely aware that they are here today enjoying their lives because of donations from families like yours. Please join us on May 5th from 9-11 at Molly Spillane’s in Mamaroneck for a buzz cut. You can join on as an individual or form your own “team” to honor family and friends who have battled cancer.
There is a similar event being hosted at Every Thing Hair on April 26th from 4-8pm for girls who would like to donate their long hair to LOCKS FOR LOVE. It is a group that makes wigs for children with cancer. 1258 Boston Post Road 914-833-9523.
