Why We Fight

Before diagnosis with DIPG, Elena Desserich was a 6-year-old with a passion for art and reading. But as the cancer slowly robbed her of her abilities, it was art and reading that remained as her link to the outside world. She was treated both at Cincinnati Children's Hospital and St. Jude Hospital in Memphis. Sadly, Elena's fight ended in August 2007, but her inspiration in us all remains strong. Her most treasured picture remains today as the logo for The Cure Starts Now.

Ayla Grace Slivka was a sweet, silly, funny, creative, science-loving, game-loving, beautiful child who was strong and fierce. She brought joy and laughter to so many lives.  On July 6, 2021, Ayla was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer known as DIPG.  This form of brain cancer affects about 300 children annually in the USA.  There are currently no effective treatments to cure this terrible disease that steals so many beautiful children. Ayla sadly earned her angel wings on June 29th, 2022. 

Harleigh Vanhorn was just over 2 years old when she exploded into our lives.  She immediately took over our hearts and our house much to our old dog's chagrin.  His new bed was her new chair so she could cuddle him.  Our couch was her new jungle gym and she wanted to be just like her new dad. Harleigh loved being active and participated in gymnastics, trampoline, swimming, cheerleading, soccer and diving.  Harleigh passed on December 5th, 2023 at the age of 9 after a 17 month battle with DIPG.  Her brain was donated to research and scientists were able to produce a cell line off of her cancer tissues.  This means that though her body has passed on, she is STILL fighting cancer.
