Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
July 25, 2009

Because our my grandson has cancer,my family has been involved with the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation for several years. It is an absolutely wonderful organization. Not only do they raise funds for pediatric cancer research, they support the children with cancer and their families. For example, they provide fun activities for the children such as Western Days. This is a day in which the cancer patients and their families get to spend time in the country riding ponies, eating and playing games. The whole family has a great time. They also have parties at Christmas and other holidays for the families. I have volunteered my time for this organization and helped raise funds for them because I believe they do a lot for the children with cancer in Orange County. I feel that we have been truly blessed to have had the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation in our lives for the past few years.
