Founded over thirty years ago, Eagles Fly for Leukemia supports pediatric cancer and leukemia research at three Delaware Valley hospitals, helping their world renowned scientists in the quest for a cure.
Why us ?
Our health. It is something we all take for granted until we no longer have it. Words cannot express the agony and anguish parents feel when their child is diagnosed with leukemia.
What we take for granted is no longer a reality for some.
The vision of Eagles Fly for Leukemia is simple. For a leukemia stricken child to awaken free of the oppressive fear and doubt brought by her affliction; for her parents to sleep at night without tears; for siblings to play without guilt...
What It Means
"Eagles Fly for Leukemia has made a huge impact on my life since I was at the young age of 9. I was undergoing chemotherapy and struggling with its effects, but I was able to go The Bert Bell Awards Dinner and meet some of my heroes. I was inspired meeting the Eagles players and coaches and going to the event made me really realize how lucky I was to have such a great organization supporting me and other children like me. I had no idea what an extreme impact the organization would have on me just a few years later. Eagles Fly for Leukemia is allowing me to go to Drexel University to pursue a career in nursing and fulfill my dream of becoming a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner. I cannot thank the people of Eagles Fly for Leukemia enough, they have been a huge part of my life for several years and are helping guide me to the next step of my life."
To Find a Cure!
We need to put an end to the fear of the disease. We need to allow parents to sleep at night. We need for children to play as children can. We need to bring an end to this disease!
We gather together to help cancer stricken children and their families continue their fight for a brighter future. They cannot do it alone. Through the efforts and commitments of individuals combined with overwhelming generosity, we have been able to make a difference.
On behalf of Eagles Fly for Leukemia, the hospitals and families we benefit and more importantly the children, thank you for your support.
