Texas (Cedar Hill)
The Cedar Hill, TX Chapter of The Cure Starts Now was started in honor of Sarai Elise Pierce. Sarai was a caring, funny and beautiful child, full of life and love. She loved singing, dancing and gymnastics. She loved to play with legos, Shopkins, Num Noms, draw and eat vanilla ice cream with sprinkles. Her favorite food was her mom’s lasagna. Sarai loved her entire family, especially her brother Sekai and her sister Saiya. She was a beautiful spirit whose life was taken too early.
Sarai was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on February 21, 2017 at the age of 7. She fought courageously for 7 months. She eventually lost all of her ability to function independently, but even during such debilitating circumstances, Sarai never complained. She adapted and made the best of whatever situation she was faced with. She was a warrior. She passed away surrounded by her beloved family on September 28, 2017. She will forever be our angel and the reason why we fight.
The Cure Starts Now (501c3 Federal Non-Profit) is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a “homerun” cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both pediatric and adult.
