Imagine having your whole world turned upside down. Imagine starting your day like any other day, only to end it as the worst day of your life. Imagine not knowing what you or your child’s future will look like. Imagine everything you are going through, the worries, and stress of everyday life coming into play. Who will pay the medical bills and support your family if you can’t work, due to taking care of your child who has just been diagnosed with Cancer?

Families going through Childhood Cancer don’t have to imagine this, they are living it. And this is where the “Just Imagine Walk” comes into play. “Just Imagine” a world where Childhood Cancer does not exist. Because of your support, we raise awareness for Childhood Cancer. Every dollar the walk brings in will go toward Childhood Cancer Research to potentially help save the life of a precious child. To learn more about the “Just Imagine Walk”, please continue to keep watching our website.

Our walk will be on Saturday, September 10, 2016! We have a great day planned for families at the Bob Noble Park in Paducah, KY…….see below for registration options. (please specify t-shirt size in the second line of the address.ust imagine

2nd Annual Just Imagine® Walk 2017 @ Bob Noble Park
Sep 9 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

Last year, Book for Hope® had its 1st Annual Just Imagine® Walk in Paducah, Kentucky. Last year we had a very successful day and are looking forward to continuing the tradition.

Imagine having your whole world turned upside down. Imagine starting your day like any other day, only to end it as the worst day of your life. Imagine not knowing what you or your child’s future will look like. Imagine everything you are going to go through with the worries and stress of everyday living. Who will pay the medical bills and support your family if you cannot work, due to caring for your child who has been diagnosed with cancer?

Families going through Childhood Cancer do not have to imagine this, they are living it. This is where the Just Imagine™ Walk comes into play. Every dollar the walk raises will be split 50/50 between Childhood Cancer Research and helping local families that are currently experiencing pediatric cancer with medical bills and other expenses.

In April, Kendra James, the mother of Kendall James, received and completed our required forms along with her pediatric oncologist. After the forms were submitted and reviewed, Kendall met all the requirements, to be considered as a candidate for assistance with expenses during her cancer treatment. Kendall will be receiving 50% of the proceeds from the walk this year. The other 50% of the proceeds will be going to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN. specifically for Childhood Cancer Research.

Jessica Meyer will be our guest speaker at the walk. Jessica Meyer is an ambassador for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Make-A-Wish Middle TN, and Rally for Kids. She is also the 2015-2016 Tennessee Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Champion Ambassador.  Through Jessica’s ambassadorship she has been featured in national fundraising campaigns such as the “Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are,” “Band Together,” and as Cancer Crusher, an 18-episode Superhero-themed Public Service Announcement for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. You may also have seen Jessica in a 3-part series called “Candid Convos” featuring her interviewing Maria Osmond, Nick Cannon, and Ali Simpson. Jessica has a passion for public speaking and is a showcased public speaker at many events. Recently Jessica was the closing plenary speaker for the American Academy of Pediatrics Hospital Medicine’s annual convention in Chicago.  Along with Jessica’s love of public speaking she has also had her story featured in Hope Magazine, Look Book, and Nashville Lifestyles. Jessica has been trying her hand at writing, she is a monthly contributing writer to NOU, an online magazine that celebrates survivorship. Most recently Jessica has been appearing as a cast member with the “My 2nd Act Survivor Stories from the Stage”,a traveling stage production that brings the inspiring stories of cancer survivorship to major cities around the United States.  Jessica is on a mission to support organizations that help children fight pediatric cancer and raise funding for life saving research with a goal to educate and inspire others to find cure for pediatric cancer.

We have a great day planned for families at Bob Noble Park, Shelter 16 in Paducah, KY for our 2nd Annual Just Imagine® Walk held on Saturday, September 9th, 2017. All activities and registration begin at 8:00 a.m.  At 9:00 a.m. Childhood Cancer survivors will lead the walk, as well as those that are walking in memory of a loved one. We would like to invite everyone to our Childhood Cancer Walk. It is hard to find someone that has not been touched by cancer in some way, whether it be a child, loved one, coworker, or friend. Please donate, walk as an individual, get teams together, or walk in honor or in memory of someone with or who has had cancer.
