BENEFITING: The Chadtough Foundation

EVENT: RUNTOUGH FOR CHADTOUGH 2017

EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2017

THE STORY:

Chad's story is a powerful one. It's impossible to think about the following (From the ChadTough page) and not be moved. "Every child deserves to survive cancer. Period. The ChadTough Foundation was formed because no family should ever hear, “there is no hope.” Jason and Tammi Carr established The ChadTough Foundation as a lasting legacy for their beloved son, Chad. Just two months after his fifth birthday, Chad lost his battle with one of the deadliest forms of pediatric brain cancer, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). He left behind a devastated family and motivated community willing to do anything to ensure future families facing DIPG have real hope in treatment. Pediatric Brain Cancer By the Numbers *Too many families suffer an immeasurable toll. Each year, 13,000+ parents hear the words “your child has cancer.” 1 out of 5 of these kids don’t survive and brain tumors are the leading cause. DIPG, in particular, has zero long-term survivors. 
 *There’s still no cure. While progress has been made in curing some childhood cancers, much of the treatment for pediatric brain tumors hasn’t changed in 40+ years. 
 *Not enough research is being done. Only 3 percent of federal funding for cancer research goes toward solving pediatric cancers. And, pediatric brain cancers receive just a sliver of these limited funds because they’re considered “rare” by medical statistics. 
 *Pediatric brain tumor research can open new avenues of treatment for other childhood and adult cancers. 
What we uncover about rare cancers like DIPG will shed light on the genetic defects and cellular behavior of all cancers.
