There is no cause more worthy of our time and compassion then to help these inspiring children who are battling cancer yet are still able to bring pure joy and happiness to those around them. Combat for cure does an amazing job to bring awareness to the world these children need our strength, compassion, and love. The community outreach is amazing and the joy they bring to the families of children with cancer is amazing. I am proud of the work Combat for a Cure continues to do with bringing this important issue to everyones attention including local and national politicians to help our children and their future.

This nonprofit is truly special and exceptional. The foundation is very professional in their way of setting up special events, fundraisers, gala's, etc. They focus on childhood cancer and more specifically neuroblastoma. I've personally been to many events held by this foundation and one key thing I noticed was how special these kids feel while attending these events. It's amazing how dedicated they are and how truly passionate Linda is about this cause and children. I will most definitely continue my participation with this great group of amazing people and I look forward to the foundation pushing forward in finding a cure for Childhood Cancer.

I have been attending the Combat for a Cure Events since 2014 when they were the Jillian Moore Foundation. There is so much heart in the events and everyone that attends I can tell truly cares about the cause. The volunteers and attendees all chip in to help at each event. They are an amazing local charity and I am proud to support them. I look forward to their annual galas each year.

This charity is a blessing for children battling cancer and their family's. The foundation is dedicated to raising awareness of childhood cancer. The founder is hands on, and has given so much of herself both emotionally, physically, and she has personally funded from her own income in hopes that one day soon, CFC will be able to partner with St. Baldrick's and fund the research for Neuroblastoma . She has organized, and participated in numerous fund raisers like 5k Runs, Skate Out Kids Cancer, The Annual Black Tie Gala, etc. The gala is the biggest event of the year. The purpose of the gala is to raise awareness for childhood cancer. I am a proud supporter and donor to the foundation.

I have been working with Linda Naw and Combat for a Cure Foundation for several years now. I have never met a person that cares so deeply for children with cancer than Linda. Her passion to help them is amazing to see and her love for the kids has brought many a tear to my eyes. Her dedication and tireless efforts to raise both money and awareness to this great cause is unmatched. If you ever want feel really good inside, just visit her website, or watch her in action at an event. So proud to know her and support her and her foundation.

I've had the distinct pleasure of knowing Linda Naw for many years and on many levels. This woman is amazing. The pure love she has for the CFC is overwhelming. She is a true angel on earth. She is so giving and never ask for anything in return. Her tireless, long hours spent for this foundation and the children most importantly are endless. If we all as humans gave just 1/4 of what Linda gives to this foundation our world would be such a loving, caring place.
I'm honored to be apart, a supporter of Linda and this foundation. Childhood cancer has affected my family, so this is so dear to my heart. I will continue my support for Linda and the CFC proudly and willingly. God Bless to the children and Linda. Kristy Pentoney

I have had the pleasure of being involved with Combat for a Cure since it's inception in 2013 as a volunteer, advocate and board member. Getting involved with this organization was one of the best decisions I ever made. The goal of raising awareness and raising funds to help research childhood cancer is the mission of the organization. Picnics, roller skating events, 5K runs and the Annual Black Tie Gala are just some of the events that C4C does on an annual basis to bring Childhood Cancer awareness to the forefront. Please get involved and join in to help make strides towards finding a cure for this terrible disease.

Combat For A Cure Foundation is locally based in Las Vegas. The Foundations aims to spread knowledge and awareness about childhood cancer, not only to Las Vegas Locals but eventually around the United States. The Foundation donates proceeds to research specifically toward childhood cancer. The Foundation works closely with local families who have children who suffer from cancer and its symptoms.

As a volunteer member of this foundation, I know that Combat for a Cure and its Founders not only care immensely about children, but the family of children who suffer from cancer and the communities with which these families live in. Combat for a Cure is locally based and enriches the Las Vegas area with compassion for its community and unification of families in need.

All proceeds are donated specifically to research toward childhood cancers. Donations can be accepted online or at our scheduled events. Please visit Combat For A Cure Foundation on Facebook for more information.
