Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
July 30, 2009
I am a nurse with greater than 25 years experience caring for children with cancer in some capacity. I have been involved over the course of these years as a volunteer for PCRF since its inception. PCRF is a grassroots organization that has kept the spirit of “it’s for the kids” forefront in their fundraising efforts. They strive to raise awareness of the need to find a cure for all types of childhood cancer through research. Enormous strides have been made in survival rates for these children through the efforts of PCRF to turn research dollars into bedside treatments. My entire family has had the opportunity to volunteer at their fundraising events such as the golf tournament, auction, roundup, and run/walk. PCRF is made up of a wonderful group of staff and volunteers with big hearts that motivate their efforts to raise funds to cure this special group of wonderful children.
