Welcome to Gabi's Personal Page!
Family and Friends,
As many of you know, my mother has had to battle cancer not once, but twice. She is one of the strongest people I know and to see how much cancer had an effect on her adult body, I cannot even begin to imagine the things it does to a child's body. With that being said, this February, I will be participating in BuckeyeThon's 2020 Dance Marathon, the largest student-run philanthropy in the state of Ohio. I will be dancing for one 12-hour shift of the 24-hour Dance Marathon, with all proceeds benefiting the kids of Nationwide Children's Hospital's Hematology/Oncology and BMT Department. I am also beyond excited to announce that I have been chosen to be one of the three Team Captains to represent the Pi Beta Phi BuckeyeThon for the 2020 Dance Marathon!
I had the opportunity to participate in the 2019 BuckeyeThon Dance Marathon, and when I initially joined BuckeyeThon, I did not have much knowledge of the organization. I decided to join the Pi Beta Phi BuckeyeThon team after hearing Emily Crock's and Alex Peterson's (C/O 2019 Ohio State, BuckeyeThon Team Captain, and Pi Beta Phi alums) reasons behind why they are so passionate about this organization.
Being a daughter of a two-time cancer survivor hasn't been the easiest and honestly, joining BuckeyeThon has changed my life. Going to BuckeyeThon in February of 2019 and seeing all of the people who have also been affected by cancer is jaw-dropping. I have met so many different people who are in the exact same or similar positions in life, and I am so blessed to now have those people by my side.
To come together with such an incredible group of people to support such an incredible cause, is such an overwhelming, emotional and astonishing experience and because of donors like you, have the ability to make the most significant impact on not only my experience as a BuckeyeThon dancer, but on the lives of so many families undergoing treatment here in Columbus, Ohio. Any amount can make a massive difference in the life of a sick kid.
