CHOMP CHILDHOOD CANCER

Together we can CHOMP CHILDHOOD CANCER

AFTF INFO

Adam was diagnosed with stage IV anaplastic wilms tumor on Jan. 4th, 2008. He was treated at Levine Children's Hospital. Adam's cancer was in his right kidney and had spread to his neck, chest, lung abdomen and pelvis. He spent 325 nights in the hospital enduring 18 days of radiation and 120 rounds of chemotherapy. Among those 325 nights in the hospital, he spent 5 weeks in ICU with 3 of those weeks on life support. He is currently out of treatment for 4 years and doing great ---- despite his 25% predicted survival rate. We are richly blessed as Adam is doing great and remains cancer free.  We use his story as story of hope for all children and families fighting this devastating disease
 We created a non-profit, 501(C)3, foundation that raises money for pediatric cancer research. Our foundation is named in honor of our son Adam--- Adam Faulk Tanksley Foundation, Inc.  We raise money through annual events--- we have pledged to raise $500,000 to Levine Children's Hospital to their pediatric cancer research facility. Leon and Sandra Levine will match our pledge $ for $, thus, making $1,000,000 endowment to the facility. 
Perhaps you don't know, Levine has a pediatric cancer research facility that offers Phase I and Phase II clinical trials for pediatric cancer. Providing the most current and best treatment for children fighting cancer while allowing them to stay close to home! Our foundation is one of 6 founding members named Carolina Kids Cancer Coalition which provide funding to the facility. We are authorized partners of Levine Children's Hospital.
