Let’s Raise. Walk. Cure.
I’m raising funds for childhood cancer research by participating in an event called Time to Fly, and I need your support.
Did you know only 4 percent of federal cancer funding dollars go to childhood cancer research? That’s not a lot considering 42 children are still diagnosed with cancer every day in the U.S. Not to mention that some chemotherapies for childhood cancers are 40-50 years old.
Childhood cancer survival rates have risen dramatically since the early 1900s, but some childhood cancers still have dismal outcomes. Current treatments can even cause secondary cancers.
Research advances are critical for survival, and I need your support now so that safer treatments and a cure can be created. For every $1 given to Children’s Cancer Research Fund, researchers can secure an extra $18 in government grants and other funding.
Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up. Thank you for supporting life-saving research happening at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital and the families and children who battle cancer daily.
