My parents and I have been involved with Kids Without Cancer for many years. After my sister passed away from cancer at 12 years of age, we felt that no other family should have to go through that pain again. KWC works so hard to raise funds to find a cure for all childhood cancer, so that every child can celebrate their next birthday. :)

I have been involved with Kids Without Cancer (formerly Leukemia, Research, Life, Inc.) for several years. As a young child I lost a friend to cancer. While my mom served on the Board, my sister and I had the opportunity to volunteer and be involved. Now that I have children of my own, I have an even greater appreciation and respect for an organization like KWC. The members of the organization are completely committed to finding a cure for pediatric cancer and have sustained fundraising efforts to support research projects for over 30 years.

I have been involved with Kids Without Cancer since I was a little girl. My parents were original board members and remain on the board and active to this day. Kids Without Cancer is an amazing organization that will stop at nothing until a cure is found. When my brother lost his life to leukemia, my parents vowed to do everything possible to find a cure so no family ever has to suffer the way we did. Kids Without Cancer is unstoppable and becuase of all their hard work, they are making a difference in the lives of so many. With out research, cancer will continue to touch the lives of so many. Thank you KWC for helping fund so many amazing new research projects! A cure will be found!!

I am an original member of Kids Without Cancer and at different times, I have had the honor of being on the Board of Directors. My wife and I lost a child to leukemia and we feel deeply that helping to raise much needed dollars for research is the most important way to honor his memory. The members of this wonderful organization work tirelessly all year long to try to give our local hospital funds for this important cause.

I have been involved with LRL now Kids Without Cancer since 1988 through my friend who lost her son to leukemia. Over the years, I have seen her working tirelessly so no other family would have to experience what she and her family felt at the loss of their family member. It is a wonderful organization dedicated to eliminating childhood cancer. I, as well as many of my family members, enjoy participating in their functions, have fun and at the same time help a wonderful cause.

I got involved with KWC when the Klein's lost their son Danny to cancer. This was the first time I had to deal with a death of a family member. It was heartwrenching and needed to do something in Danny's honor. Everyone's SUPERMAN:=) That's when KWC formerly LRL was formed. Over the years I have been part of many fundraisers and events for cancer research and have raised $3.6 million for the cause. No family should have to deal with the loss of a child and we need to find a cure. This charity has given back so much over the years and will not stop until they find a cure for cancer. I am pround to be a volunteer of KWC. If you are looking to get involved with a charity or group that cares, please consider Kids Without Cancer.

I've been a member of Kids Without Cancer since 1995. Coming from a healthy family, it was important to me to give back and donate my time helping to raise funds for pediatric cancer research to find a cure. No child should have to endure the treatments and risk of dying from cancer. Over the years its been exciting to see the progress in overall survival rate. However we’re still not there. Research needs to continue to find the ultimate cure. Lets all give back. Do what you can to help. Lets help kids to live a full and healthy life!

I've been involved with Leukemia, Research, Life, INC. since 1995. My husband Nick had told me about this wonderful organization and his involvement since its inception. What I liked about the organization is that it raises funds for pediatric cancer research - searching for a cure, a family's greatest nightmare in which there may not be enough research dollars available to find the cure that's going to save their child. What happens then to their child? Its devastating to a family. Nick and I have 3 healthy grandchildren. We appreciate and are thankful everyday that these young girls do not have to face painful treatments and proceduers. This is my chance to give back my time and effort to help raise funds for pediatric cancer espeically for those families who are overwhelmed and don't know what's coming next at them. If you've never experienced cancer directly you may have no idea what these familes are going through. This is their life everyday. Soccor, and other kid's events are placed in the background. Anyone with a healthy child, I know you are busy with your life and their activities, but thank God everyday that you don't have to spend time on the pediatric cancer unit. Perhaps you can give back some of your time too just to help another child.

My son was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 2 1/2 years old. Less than a year later, Kids Without Cancer (formerly Leukemia, Research, Life) was founded. Our goal has always been to find a cure for all childhood cancers through research at Children's Hospital of MI. As a parent, you feel totally helpless when your child is so ill. Raising awareness by fund raising gives a parent a little control back. Since our inception, we have raised over $3.6 million dollars to fund research projects. Sadly, we lost our precious son shortly before his 8th birthday. Not a day goes by that we don't miss him terribly, but our family has found incredible strength from our friends at KWC who share our goal of finding a cure for children's cancer. We continue to raise money in memory of the children we have lost, as well as in honor of other children who are still fighting this disease. I am proud to be a small part of this incredible group of people.

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.

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.

The Great!
