Matthew's Heart & Sole
Did you know that funding is scarce for pediatric cancer?
Before our son, Matthew, was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, I hadn't really given it a lot of thought. If you had asked me, I would have assumed there was a proportionate share of funding going to all types of cancer research. But I would have been wrong.
Because cancer most often occurs in older populations, pharmaceutical companies were not incentivized to develop treatments for cancers that develop during childhood.
Therefore, nearly all funding for the research of pediatric cancer comes from private donations.
We are so excited to participate in CureSearch Gold in Annapolis again this year. The event benefits CureSearch for Children's Cancer and the money our team raises supports their mission to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research!
We need your help to be successful! Please, join our team or make a donation to CureSearch for Children's Cancer on our behalf.
Together, we are fighting for the future every child deserves and every parent dreams of.
Thank you so much!
