Hello Friends and Family,
We registered a fundraiser with Cookies for Kids' Cancer because we want to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Cookies for Kids' Cancer provides annual research grants to five of the nation's leading pediatric cancer centers to advance the development of less toxic, more effective treatments for children battling cancer. Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease of children in the U.S. Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's goes to all childhood cancers combined. Two-thirds of pediatric cancer patients will develop long-term side effects, many life-threatening -- a result of the treatments that "cured" them. Only four of the 12 most common types of childhood cancers have average survival rates over 80%
Everyday, 46 children are diagnosed with some type of Pediatric Cancer. Over the last 5 years, 4 children who attended the preschool that we work at were diagnosed with cancer. Four children, that's a lot of children in one place, it can happen to any family.
There is ONE THING that can truly change the facts of childhood cancers forever -- FUNDING for research to find new, improved therapies.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of my fundraising efforts. You can make an on-line donation with your credit card by clicking on the "donate" button on this page.
