Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was founded by a determined mother to help increase her young son’s odds in his fight against cancer. September is childhood cancer awareness month, and Cookies for Kids Cancer is teaming up with Momcology to raise money for pediatric cancer research this year. Momcology is a support group for mothers of children who have or have had cancer. Robin Chambers (Mason), Emily Shaffer(Emma), and Jenny Foss Puzzo (Ben) are having a bake sale to benefit childhood cancer research from 5pm to 8pm at Southwest Junior High located at 943 9th Ave. SW Forest Lake, MN 55025. This will coincide with the Forest Lake vs Roseville swim meet on September 1st. We would love to see you there, but if you cannot make it please consider an online donation during September.
It might come as a surprise that pediatric cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. And two-thirds of children who do survive will develop long-term side effects, including secondary cancers and organ failure… a result of the very treatments that once “cured” them. This is why it is critical we find safer, more effective treatments. And that is why we are joining the fight. We are not doing this for our children, we are doing it for everyone's children.
We don't want any one else to hear those 4 little words "your child has cancer." The money you give will help us to achieve that goal.
Our goal is to raise $3,000 before, after and during our bake sale. I hope you will “Be a Good Cookie” and support our efforts. Every dollar counts and every small act makes a difference.
Your tax-deductible donation would be a tremendous step in our mission to change the statistics for the 40,000 children actively battling cancer in the U.S. right now.
We also ask that you reach out to others you know and inspire them to follow in your footsteps. Help us spread the word. Because if we all do a little, it adds up to a lot!
This bake sale is in honor of Mason, Emma and Ben, all of whom have suffered from cancer and the effects of their treatment.
