Childhood Cancer Awareness month deserves to have so much more attention but unfortunately falls to the families of children with cancer. It is hard to get media or large organizations to GO GOLD and raise awareness and funds for research. So families like ours do whatever we can to help all the kiddos battling cancer.
The reality is there are too many kids with cancer, and too little of support. The national cancer funding for pediatric cancer is just 4% of the total cancer budget. 4%! These kids are the future of our country and we are giving them 30-40 year old drugs that were developed for adults but the funding for research specifically in the pediatric cancer medicines is very limited.
CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH FUND focuses on raising money for pediatric cancers. All money donate goes to making treatments better for kids. Anything helps! Please consider donating even if it is just a few dollars because a few dollars will add up to a lot for these kids.
We are hoping to raise ~$1,500 in the month of September in honor of all the kids that will be diagnosed with cancer this month. Roughly 43 families every day receive the gut wrenching news that they child has cancer. Yes, cancer. So lets raise a dollar for every child that receives the diagnosis this month.
Thank you for all your support!
