Cure for Kids
Cure for Kids – EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS – Funding for Childhood Cancer Research – Estimated need unlimited!
In the United States an average of 46 kids a day are diagnosed with cancer and 7 children die EVERY day from cancer. Cancer is the most common cause of death by disease in children. Those that are fortunate enough to survive are never the same. Two-thirds of survivors face at least one chronic health condition. One quarter of survivors face a late effect from treatment that is classified as severe or life threatening. Research is needed but ALL childhood cancers combined get less than 4% of cancer funding from the federal government! We have raised funds through tshirt and spirit stick sales to give thousands of dollars split to some of the following non-profits dedicated to childhood cancer research: CureSearch, Children’s Oncology Group Foundation, St. Baldrick’s, St. Jude.
It’s our goal to continuously provide funds for childhood cancer research as long as children are battling this disease. Help us fund a cure for kids!
