Hello, my name is Kai Martin and on March 5th, I'm turning 15 years old. This is a special year for my birthday fundraiser because it marks 10 straight years that I'm asking for donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society instead of presents for my birthday. My grand total over the past 9 years is just over $25,000 thanks to so many people's help.
Almost every year I get asked two questions: 1) Do you really not get presents? (The answer is I really don't!) and 2) I get asked a lot why do I do this. Blood cancer has impacted my family a lot since I was young. As long as I knew her, my Nana Gail had it and then when I was 8 my papa John was also diagnosed with it. When I started this for my 6th birthday they were both still here and now they are both gone. Cancer, I feel is the worst disease ever and I think cancer has taken too many lives already. We should never stop trying to find a cure and help those in need. There are so many intelligent people out there who are trying to help. I would be very grateful if you would make a donation, or just share my cause with others so that we can work together to destroy this disease. Thank you so much! Let's help support ending cancer!
