After I lost my daughter to cancer in 1993. The 3 months that my daughter fought the disease and the time without her was enough to know that I needed to do something to help find a cure There are too many children who are affected and the research in underfunded. Kids Without Cancer is dedicated to raise awareness and the much needed funds to find that cure.

I got involved with Kids Without Cancer because I was looking for a way to help raise awareness and research money for childhood cancer. As a mother of a childhood cancer survivor, I've learned first hand how important this research is, especially with so many kids in our community being diagnosed every year with this disease. KWC members impressed me with their level of commitment and dedication to the cause, and they've inspired me to want to do the same. As an organization, they've been around for over 30 years and have worked to raise over 3.5 million for cancer research at Children's Hospital of Michigan. I am proud to be affiliated with this wonderful organization. I hope that more people will share in our vision and want to help make our goal a reality - a world of Kids Without Cancer.

I first learned about Kids Without Cancer from a member who's son was treated by the same doctor as my brother. Happily, her son is a cancer survivor. My brother passed away seven years ago. But my brother did not die as a direct result of the cancer, he died of his treatment. The treatments he received as a child caused brain tumors as an adult. What I love about Kids Without Cancer is their goal of eradicating all childhood cancers by funding research. These research projects that have been funded by the organization over the past thirty years HAVE made a difference in how childhood cancer is treated today. The doctors and staff who perform the research are top notch and world class. We have become a family at Kids Without Cancer with a common goal of helping our young people so they can become survivors and lead a long, healthy life.

Kids Without Cancer (formerly Leukemia, Research, Life) is an all volunteer group of parents, relatives and friends, who choose to make a difference. Kids Without Cancer was formed by a group of parents with one thing in common - their children had cancer. As a founding memeber I believe by supporting cancer research at a local level we help our children, our families and our community in the fight against the #1 killer disease of children in our country. Early on we recognized the need for pediatric cancer research into the treatment, diagnosis, prevention and ultimate cure of cancer. We organized our efforts and incorporated as a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 1981. We remain the largest non-profit contributor solely dedicated to supporting pediatric cancer research at Children's Hospital of Michigan. For over 31 years, Kids Without Cancer has remained a volunteer-based organization committed to the belief that a few can make a huge difference. We have raised in excess of $3.6 million dollars and are proud of the fact that over 94% of every dollar raised is spent soley on pediatric cancer research. In 1983 when my best friends son succumbed to cancer one week after his 8th birthday I vowed to him that I would NEVER, EVER, give up his fight to find a cure. 31 years later I continue to carry his torch and will do so till I take my last breath.

I came from Florida to attend LRL's Evening of Hope event this year. What a wonderful night. I was able to meet with the very doctors doing the actual cancer research and also met some of the childhood cancer survivors that are aligned with this charity. A very emotional and touching experience to say the least. I love this organization and will continue to support it in the future.

The Great!

I've met the kids who have survived cancer because of the research being funded by LRL. I've met the doctors and researchers firsthand. I've also met the incredible volunteers and directors of LRL and have experienced their dedication.

Leukemia Research Life is an exceptional organization which raises money for cancer research at Children's Hospital of Michigan. The organization gives back a very large percentage of their donations to cancer research, and over the years they have done a lot to fund specific cancer research projects that have undoubtedly saved many lives. I volunteer because my wife is involved in the organization, but also because I have come to appreciate the mission of the organization and have seen first-hand the dedication of the volunteers. When they show the slide show presentation at the Evening of Hope, I get tears in my eyes every time. No, it's not the largest charity that helps raise money for pediatric cancer research, but the people who volunteer for LRL do it because they want to see an end to childhood cancer. They also sponsor several other events besides the Evening of Hope, and the events are always worthwhile and fun to be involved in. If you're thinking of volunteering with LRL, you don't have to invest a lot of time... they could use the support, as much or as little as you're willing to give.

I had a great time at the incredible Evening of Hope event - my first event with this organization. The company I work for sponsors this charity and our President is also the President of this organization. Hearing the speeches from the wonderful doctors at Children's Hospital was so inspiring - and hearing the stories from the kids who survived cancer was incredibly emotional and touching. I love what this charity is doing and plan on continuing to contribute tho their cause.

What's really wonderful is meeting the doctors and researchers first-hand and seeing the kids who have survived cancer. It's great to know that this cutting-edge research is going on right here in Detroit.

My company is a sponsor of this wonderful organization. We are so pleased to be able to help fund research for finding a cure for childhood cancers. I have met many of the amazing volunteers and board members and just wish I could do more to help them - what a great mission - the eradication of childhood cancer! My greatest wish is that they are able to fulfill this mission.

The Great!

I've met some of the children survivors and heard their stories. Twenty or thirty years ago some of these kids would surely not have survived but due to the research and resulting treatments survival rates are on the rise.

Our oldest son was treated for childhood leukemia two times and is a survivor. He has just celebrated 15 years of being cancer free. He is turning 23 in July. We attended the recent Evening of Hope in Michigan and it was a beautiful evening. LRL does wonderful work and we need organizations like this to continue the fight to find a cure for childhood cancer. The volunteers, board members, families of children who have cancer or who have been treated in the past all play a huge role and we truly loved the entire evening and what it represents. LRL needs to continue to be supported. Many thanks for all you offer. Elizabeth C.

LRL is a wonderful organization engaged in funding research to end childhood cancer. I love the fact that it is entirely volunteer run allowing the organization to pass along over 90% of all money raised. I am so happy to be able to help this organization achieve its mission.
