Beginning this year, by buying or selling a home with Liane Jamason at Corcoran Dwellings, you are also supporting All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine.
In my real estate career, I have been searching for a way to get involved at a local level and pay forward my good fortune of being cured of cancer myself – my story is here. I am a survivor of Stage 3B Hodgkins Lymphoma (a cancer of the blood & lymphatic system). Now, I’ve finally found a way.
I decided to create a fund that will donate $25,000 to All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine to be used for pediatric cancer research. Beyond this, our team will also be volunteering in the hospital as well. We are planning some fun events for the children and families being treated here, as well as I have signed up to be a Pet Therapy assistant who brings dogs to play with the children who are receiving in-patient treatments.
The way we will raise the $25,000 is by donating a portion of our proceeds from each closing we have to All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine, as well as a few fundraising events we’ll hold each year.
Here’s how you can help!
- Know someone planning to move that we can reach out to and see if we can help? Contact us and send us their name & number! We love referrals! Remember, a portion of every closing we have goes towards the fund!
- Want to volunteer and help out at one of our fundraising events! Contact us and let us know.
Let me just tell you how amazing this place is. I was able to do a tour of the facility and I teared up at least 3 times during the tour. It hits so close to home for me. This place goes above and beyond just treating sick children, to making it a not-so-miserable place for them. There are game rooms, art sessions, pet therapy visits, parades in the halls, and so much more. The kids even get interactive TV menus in their room from which they can order room service, watch an on demand movie and more. I was simply blown away. But what really got me was the bell in the hallway of the cancer ward. The kids get to ring the bell on the day they finish their last chemo or radiation treatment, and everyone cheers and the sound brings hope to the others still in the process.
We hope you will join us in our mission to find new cures for pediatric cancers. If you’d like to get more involved, please contact us.
