Most people look back at their youth and think of the nostalgic moments: elementary school, first dates, proms, and drivers’ licenses. Annually, 160,000 children worldwide have to look back at one more life-changing moment: a cancer diagnosis.
Suddenly, the awkwardness of middle school seems like a walk in the park when compared to chemotherapy treatments.
It is hard to imagine the hundreds of thousands of children and families who have to experience the traumatic battle of childhood cancer, and even harder to imagine the children who do not have the chance to chase their dreams: to become lawyers, teachers, or doctors.
The Vs. Cancer Foundation is changing that.
No longer will a child battle cancer alone. By funding our local children’s hospitals as well as international research, the Vs. Cancer Foundation is helping both the child of today and the child of tomorrow. The Vs. Cancer Foundation teams with athletes at every level all over the country to raise awareness and dollars to for the fight against childhood cancer. We want to help the child next door as much as the child across the country. We are all in this together- Vs. Cancer.
Make a decision to make a difference. Help fund the opportunity for the next first day of school, the next report card, the next homecoming king and queen. Help fund the next astronaut, artist, and President of the United States of America. Your efforts will ensure that the next child diagnosed knows he is not alone in the battle Vs. Cancer.
We are going to save kids’ lives. Join us in this heroic effort Vs. Cancer.
