I was inspired to get involved wth Make Some Noise: Cure Kids Cancer Foundatio, Inc. when the son of a collegue of mine (Malcolm) was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. Seeing Malcolm struggle through treatments and surgery really brought home to me how discruptive pedicatric cancer is, certainly for the families of the children taken by the disease, but also for the suvivors and their families. When Malcolm then created the foundation, I just knew that I had to get involved. Starting first as a volunteer, then a board member, then the head of the Colorado chapter I have seen Malcolm and the foundation inspire an army of people who have done amazing things to promote the awareness of pediatric cancer as well as raising money to fund the research which is necessary to develop cures. As the foundation's principl awareness vehicle, the Angle Quilt makes a tremendously moving statement about human cost of lives cut short as a result of pediatric cancer. Noise Night, a co-ordinated multi-city fund raising event, along wih numberous grass roots fund raising events, have allowed the foundation to contribute funds for research that will really make a differece. I most enthusiastically endorse the non-proft Make Some Noise: Cure Kids Cancer, Inc to be named a 2012 Top-Rated Great Non-profit.
