Cancer is the number one disease killer of children! Please consider adding Curesearch to your charity list. CureSearch represents the Children's Oncology Group and the National Childhood Cancer Foundation. Together they are raising money and doing research to find a cure for kids with cancer like my son, Jonah. I would love for them to improve treatments. It just doesn't seem right that amputation should have to be the answer like it was for my son. Curesearch is a well organized effort! I used to give to American Cancer Society, but found that only 3% of what I was giving would be designated to findind a cure for childhood cancer after they pay administration costs and divide the money to all the different cancers, most of them being adult only cancers. I found out that with Curesearch 95% of my money goes to finding a cure for kids like mine! How awesome is that! I know many of you have heard of Phillip and Elizabeth who lost their lives to this monster. Help save kids with cancer!

Childhood cancer is the #1 killer disease of our children today, more than from asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies, and pediatric AIDS combined. 1 in 300 children will be diagnosed with cancer before age 20. 1 in 4 or 5 will not survive. 60% of the survivors will face developmental issues, infertility, secondary cancers, major organ damage or other long term effects. (For example, my son now has a right leg prosthetic and hearing aids as he lost his ability to hear high frequency sounds due to chemo treatments. We could face more effects still.) The treatments are simply downsized adult doses, which the child's developing body simply do not metabolize like an adults. The funding for childhood cancer is woefully inadequate. Less than 3% of all cancer funding is directed at the 12 major types of childhood cancer. Yet childhood cancer take more potential years of life than many major adult cancers. Based on 5 year survival rates from the American Cancer Society, ****** cancer takes 200,000 potential life years, prostate cancer 8,000, ovarian cancer 107,000 and childhood cancer 180,000 potential life years every year. So, while the incidence is relatively rare, the societal impact is just as large or greater than many more "well known" cancers.


Sorry to get on my soap box, but for obvious reasons this is something I'm passionate about!

I voted for children's cancer research myself. It hits home for me-a very good friend of mine has a two year old with a very rare and agressive cancer. So sad to see the little ones that sick. A worthy cause to be sure.
