Make Some Noise 4 Kids (MSN) is a cutting edge non-profit organization which has brought concrete dollars, awareness and hope to the lives of children, families and friends struck with the horrors of childhood cancer. Our family has been impressed with MSN’s whole mission: increasing the miniscule fraction of research monies allotted to Pediatric Cancer Research so badly needed to find a cure for childhood cancer. Several years ago when our son’s 13 year old soccer star buddy was struck with a rare form of bone cancer, we learned through MSN just how lacking Pediatric research funding is in this country. We were inspired to get involved with MSN especially as it was founded and lead by a young man (Malcolm Sutherland-Foggio) a victim of acute cancer, who has seen his own misfortune as an opportunity to make a real difference- to help prevent others from suffering as he has. Through MSN we’ve learned that new research is on the very cusp of finding break-through cures for childhood cancer, such as utilizing the body’s own immune system- rather than relying on chemo and radiation treatments – to destroy and reverse cancerous cell growth. MSN has built a strong reputation including: great identity packaging; ongoing annual campaign events; Angel Quilt Tour; celebrity involvement; and working to create awareness from the most grassroots levels at the local schools and businesses to television coverage to the creation of a national organization with local chapters. Particularly impressive is MSN’s unique efficiency, ie: 97 to 99% of all donations go to curing cancer cause related activity. MSN has created a path and lead the way for others to become integral parts of an effective foundation making a significant difference in finding a cure for kid’s cancer.
