John Poferl of Love Beer Hate Cancer
“The blessing and curse of getting to know an organization like CCRF is that it sometimes means you or your family have been touched by childhood cancer. That was the case with our family as it was during my stepsister Katie's five-year, losing battle with Osteosarcoma that we first got to know some of the marvelous folks at CCRF. I can’t think of a more puzzling and unsettling diagnosis than childhood cancer. We fundraise, because every kid deserves a fair chance to live a full, healthy life.”
Randy of the 140 Invitational Golf Tournament
“When my friends and I started the 140 Invitational Golf benefit, we could not think of a better cause to support than fighting childhood cancer. Children who have cancer and their families have their worlds turned upside down through no fault of their own. Childhood cancer affects all of us. Raising money for research is something we all can do to support the cause. Losing our children to cancer is unacceptable. Finding a cure for childhood cancer is within our reach and I intend to continue fighting this terrible disease so children can achieve their goals and families can again go back to a normal life.”
Angie of Emma’s Hope
"We discovered Children's Cancer Research Fund while Emma was still in treatment back in the fall of 1999. We knew immediately we wanted to support their mission, but it took until after Emma's treatment was over before we knew how that support might look. Just hearing one child's story is enough to want to do something. When you are fighting the childhood cancer battle, you ARE the cause. We did Emma's Hope for fifteen years because we care about children who are fighting for their lives, and we care about their parents who would do absolutely anything in the world to save them."
