This event is being held in memory of Alicia Cooper, a New Philadelphia 17-year old who passed away on January 3, 2010 from Aplastic Anemia in the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, only 2-1/2 months after being diagnosed. Aplastic Anemia is a bone marrow failure disease that affects 1 in 3 million people every year in the United States.
Proceeds from the walk will benefit Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital Bone Marrow Transplant Program and aid in research of Aplastic Anemia.
