As you read the above sobering statistics, please know that childhood cancer can strike a family with children at anytime and anywhere. There is no rhyme or reason to it. There is no cultural bias or predisposition. In addition, each and every case of childhood cancer is a very personal physical and emotional tragedy that most families were uneducated and unprepared for.
While we at CBC support the funding for advances in childhood cancer research, and we are appalled at the miniscule amounts of federal dollars directed to childhood cancer research, our aim is to come along side the families that are in the battle today and assist and support them emotionally, psychologically, spiritually and financially. We pray for cure and support organizations like The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, American Cancer Society, CureSearch, and others that donate their funds directly to research; but we feel strongly that can not forget that many families are in the thick of this battle that the research of today will not help. Therefore, every dollar raised at CBC goes directly to assisting the families in the greatest need who are battling childhood cancer.
Thank you for your support of these families. Every donation counts.
