THE STORY:

 

Help us make a difference in the lives of children with cancer and their families -- let's dance for a cure!

 

Meet Delaney Clements:

Delaney loves fashion, photography, dancing, and Taylor Swift.  She's only 13, but she's been battling neuroblastoma since she was 8.  She is currently on hospice -- because no adequate treatment exists that could save her life.  In fact, in the past 30 years, only 3 new drugs have been approved to treat childhood cancer.  Most kids are being treated with drugs that are older than I am.

80% of children with cancer reach life-threatening or fatal levels of toxicity during treatment.  All too often, these treatments do not even cure the cancer -- instead, they create new secondary cancers, or cause heart, lung, reproductive, bone, sight, and hearing damage.  These treatments are anything but what their name implies -- we need better options for these kids.  We need treatments that actually treat them.

Delaney wants to be remembered as the "Beautiful Fabulous Dancing Queen".  In her honor, join me in dancing for a cure, FTK -- For The Kids.

Some facts:

46 children are diagnosed with cancer every day (nearly two classrooms full), and 7 a day die -- in the United States alone. 1 out of 330 children will develop cancer by age 20. Pediatric cancer is the #1 disease killer of US kids -- more than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, AIDS, asthma, and juvenile diabetes COMBINED. 32% of childhood cancer survivors suffer from severe and often life-threatening effects of the harsh treatments needed to save their lives. Many will suffer infertility, blindness, deafness, cognitive impairment, heart and lung failure, amputations, and secondary cancers. Of all general cancer research funding from the federal government, pediatric cancers are allotted just 4%. That 4% must then be divided up between 12 types of pediatric cancers, along with each type's numerous subtypes. Pediatric research oncologists are firm that the potential for better treatment options is out there -- but the funding for trials simply is not. 
Our kids deserve ‪#‎MoreThan4‬. Please ‪#‎GoGold‬ for the month of September, which is ‪#‎childhoodcancerawareness‬ month. Please consider donating to my "Lights Camera Cure" fundraiser; your dollars could fund a trial that saves a child's life.

---

The 5th Annual Hollywood Dance Marathon presented by Lights Camera Cure features hundreds of participants dancing for 6 hours having raised money to battle pediatric and young adult cancer. No dance skills required!

WHY? Every year, over 15,000 children and nearly 70,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer. One day we'll dance in celebration -- until then we'll dance for a cure!

(Also the live music, DJs, dance groups, celebrity VIPs, silent auction, red carpet, and raffle prizes are REALLY FUN!)
