Kids fighting cancer may be TINY but they sure are TOUGH!
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September is childhood cancer awareness month. In the US, 7 children die from cancer or its treatment every single day. Another 43 will be diagnosed today. This is not acceptable! Often times, people think that kids cancer is “being handled” but sadly, only 4% of the National Cancer Institute Budget goes to pediatric cancers. Breakthroughs and advances are largely funded by private family foundations. Wearing GOLD this September can help to raise awareness for kids’ cancers and show support for those fighting! Can you imagine how great it is for a kid with cancer to see someone else wearing GOLD for them??
Where will the t-shirt sales proceeds go?
Did you know that some kids with cancer are ready to be discharged from the hospital but have to stay because insurance isn’t covering their necessary medical supplies? Simple things like antibiotics?!?! Or that some pediatric cancer patients don’t have coverage so have to stay in patient when it’s not medically necessary??
For Emmi’s 4th Birthday, we want to help get these kids home for the holidays! It costs about $1500 to get the medical supplies needed for a childhood cancer patient to go home. So this year, please consider helping us get these kiddos home for the holidays in honor of Emmi’s Birthday! Cure Kids’ Cancer Now! exists to bring support to families fighting kids’ cancer and support research to END it!
Proceeds from t-shirt sales will go to Cure Kids’ Cancer Now! Foundation- supporting families fighting kids’ cancers through research, education, and our annual Home for the Holidays project.
Who’s Emmi Grace?
Our beautiful youngest daughter Emmi Grace was born December 2015. In April 2016, she was diagnosed with the horrible beast AT/RT (an aggressive brain cancer). She was TINY BUT TOUGH! She underwent multiple surgeries and received intensive chemotherapy treatments. In spite of working with some of the best doctors and nurses in the field, the science failed her. She was born to eternal life in June 2016 at only 5 months old.
Cancer attacks families. We want to be there for families so that they know that these kids are TINY BUT TOUGH! And so are we!
Thank you for helping us to GO GOLD this September to support children fighting childhood cancers.
