When Jennifer James’ daughter Scarlett was diagnosed with cancer two years ago, the reality that she would no longer be able to go to school or see her friends quickly set in. “Cancer is truly one disease that can completely wipe out your calendar. Every dinner, appointment and trip was canceled,” said Jennifer. But then the James family heard about Kids Walk for Kids with Cancer , a family-friendly event through Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center that supports pediatric cancer research. Kids Walk gave Scarlett a chance to see all of her friends and family while celebrating cancer survivors. Scarlett, who finished her cancer treatment in November, walked this year with new friends who are battling cancer and old friends who completed treatment with her.
