Every day, parents with a child who has survived cancer are told their child may need hearing aids, have stunted growth, be developmentally delayed or will most likely be infertile.
And, their child is the lucky one. He is a survivor. More than 95% of childhood cancer survivors will have a significant health-related issue by the time they are 45 years of age as a result of treatment.
Other parents are told their child will not survive because there are no more options to save her life. She is the unlucky one. She is a statistic. Each day, seven sets of parents in the United States wake up, get dressed and drive to their child’s funeral.
Neither of these outcomes are acceptable to the team at Cannonball Kids’ cancer Foundation. We want to create treatment options for children battling cancer. Options which produce both survivors AND quality of life… not one or the other.
Together, CKc and our donors have awarded $1.9 million in research grants and created 385 treatment options for children.
On Saturday, March 7, 2020, we will host our fifth annual Gold Gala. Money raised during the event directly funds these life-saving research grants and create options for children in hopeless situations.
Please join us at the Gold Gala. YOU can save a child’s life!
