In 2020, 949 Canadian Children will be diagnosed with Cancer; 119 of those will die.
As you read this 10,000 children are fighting for their lives.
50% of donations will go to THE CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY & 50% of donations will go to UNIVERSITY HOSPITALS KINGSTON FOUNDATION (KGH, HOTEL DIEU ETC) both of these charitable organizations are fully in support of my fundraising efforts. TAX RECEIPT issued by one of these organizations.
Childhood Cancer is grossly underfunded! With only 4% of all research funding going towards childhood cancer.
This Gala was inspired by our own son, and the other brave boys and girls we met at Sick Kids. In 2018, our 9 year old son, suffered through 5 months of medical interventions; thank God the tumor growing in his tiny neck was benign. Sadly, there were many parents (we met in the hospital) who did not have the same happy outcome as us.
Why Fund Research??? Research is the best weapon in the fight against cancer. Devastatingly, Pediatric
Cancer is the most common cause of disease related death in children aged 0-14. Childhood cancers are biologically distinct from adult cancers, therefore research must be targeted specifically
for this population. Canadian pediatric oncology researchers are regarded as world-renowned experts in
childhood cancer, but they lack the funding they so desperately require
