KIDS WITHOUT CANCER (formerly Leukemia, Research, Life, Inc.)
November 12, 2012

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!

KIDS WITHOUT CANCER (formerly Leukemia, Research, Life, Inc.)
October 7, 2009

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.
