Team Nixon was created in 2018, 5 short months after my youngest son Nixon was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Nixon finished his 144 weeks, over 1,000 days of treatment on New Year’s Eve 2019 and was treated under the amazing care of DFCI and primary oncologist Dr Lewis Silverman. During this time, our family of 4 are being cared for, our minds, hearts and bodies by the Child Life Team is DCFI.
Since being established Team Nixon raised over USD158,000 for patient care and research. We had a 80 person strong team in both Boston, the UK and in Australia our home country in 2019 and over 60 people join in the year before.
This year, given the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to host our normal fundraising events, so our goal is a more modest USD10,000. We understand that economic conditions are not what they were last year, however we still ask for your support since the facts remain, research into Pediatric Cancer is constrained by low funding rates.
Join us as Team Nixon to end the stranglehold cancer has on humanity and in particular our kids.
