Walk and Roll Chicago

Walk for Miss Roberta

Last March, my beautiful mom Roberta was diagnosed with liver and bile duct cancer and fought a valiant battle for eight months. In September, heaven gained the absolute best angel it could have. While she left behind friends, family and dancers heartbroken, she also left behind a beautiful and strong team to fight for a cure.

 

Together, Team Walk for Miss Roberta is raising money to support the American Cancer Society in their efforts to support cancer patients, their families and find a cure for this disease. We are participating in this Walk and Roll 5K at Maggie Daley Park on June 8th so we can fight for my mom since she can’t anymore. 

 

As most of you know, my mom has been known as "Miss Roberta" for over 30 years. As a dance teacher, one of the things she’s instilled in her students is what she calls the Three D’s of Dance:

 

Dedication. Desire. Discipline. 

 

My mom has always had these three D’s instilled in different aspects of her life, her students and her kids. All of us—friends, family, dancers—are using our own dedication, desire and discipline to fight—for a cure and so other families are supported in their own fights against this disease. 

 

Thank you in advance for your donation, and for all of the love, support, and prayers that you've given my mom and our family. We cannot tell you how much it means to us!

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed this team because cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

The money our team raises helps the American Cancer Society in so many ways. It's helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It's providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

Join us. Donate today. Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
