Hello Friends and Family!
I am taking a stand against childhood cancer by joining thousands of Mini-THON® student volunteers who are fundraising for Four Diamonds.
In the U.S., more than 16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year - that's one child every 33 minutes. This year, Mini-Thon is extra important to my family and me. This past fall my 16 year old cousin, Gavin, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. He is recovering and groups like Four Diamonds ensure others can benefit from treatment as well.
The dollars I raise will support Four Diamonds' research to better prevent, diagnose, treat and cure childhood cancer. Thanks to our support, Four Diamonds scientists and doctors can accelerate their work to:
- Conduct clinical trials that leads to new treatments and drugs;
- Offer treatment and hope to patients whose disease is not responding to therapy;
- Foster collaboration with doctors and scientists around the world; and
- Train researchers so we can continue to fight for the next generation.
Our support also ensures that every Four Diamonds child, regardless of income, receives the highest quality of childhood cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care. Since 1972, Four Diamonds has helped more than 4,800 children and their families.
Please join me in the fight to conquer childhood cancer by donating today!
