Today is the seventh anniversary of Jared's (our son-age 26) death. He fought for almost 5 years. He had Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. 15,780 children get cancer yearly and approximately 2,000 will die. Rhabdomyosarcoma is one of the most common types of cancer in children. According to Sarcoma Alliance, between 1,500-1,700 children are diagnosed with bone or soft tissue cancer, yearly.
Cancer doesn't discriminate- anyone of any age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or wealth status-can get it. Only 4% of the monies allotted for cancer research nationally, are given to childhood cancer and not enough is allotted for ALL Cancers.
What can we do? We can choose which cancer researchers we want to fund. They are looking for new answers, not just more poisons to kill the cancer (all non-cancerous) cells. Our 501(c)(3) charity looks for researchers trying to find non-toxic ways to end cancer, especially children's cancers and sarcomas. PLEASE help us win the war on these cancers by donating to us, as much as you can afford, as often as you can. Some of the monies received will be in reserve for the following year, about half of it will be given to certain researchers. We hope to have a large fundraising event yearly to help us support these hard working researchers. Please join us and let's really try to conquer cancer! Support us by donating
