Scott Carter was a 13-year old boy who died in December 1993 after a courageous three-year battle with bone cancer. The foundation has been around for 24 years and has funded several research fellowships as well as several special projects working towards the common goal of curing childhood cancer. These projects include: The largest bone marrow registry to date in Tulsa, Oklahoma through the Red Cross organization.The funding of a SKYlab project.The purchase of a specialized microscope in Omaha, Nebraska. Contributions to Project Woman (a project that pays for mammograms for those who need them, but can’t afford them). Camp OK Corral (children’s cancer camp provided through the American Cancer Society).
This is the second year I will be fundraising with the Scott Carter Foundation and joining their team in the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend where Scott's huge collection of sports memmorabilia is on display. Please consider joining me in contributing to children's cancer research and cure.
