Against all odds, doctors at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center saved Jenna Miller’s life when she was a toddler. Sixteen years later, Miller keeps hope alive that the hospital will find a cure for children’s cancers.

Miller, of Oxford, is an 18-year-old freshman pre-law student at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., was diagnosed with a life-threatening malignant tumor on her spine called a neuroblastoma when she was just 18 months old.

Though many doctors told her parents there was no hope, oncologists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering (MSK) removed the tumor and saved her life.

On Saturday, Miller will give back to the hospital when she organizes the first “Connecticut Kids Walk for Kids With Cancer” in Shelton.

The event will be held at 1:30 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park at 37 Canal Street East.

The group of walkers will set up in the middle of the park. All money raised will go toward pediatric cancer research at MSK.
