I was inspired to get involved in raising money, and awareness for pediatric cancer research from a brave young man that visited my job at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly plant named Eli Williams. I never met Eli the day of his visit, but worked behind the scenes to make his visit extra special. 3 years later, after a few projects to bring some joy to Eli, and working with his family on some projects for their non profit, I got to finally meet Eli. Eli's visit woke me up to the world of pediatric cancer, and his family taught me about the challenges ALL pediatric cancer family's face with the underfunding problems facing pediatric cancer. Eli's non-profit is located in Alabama, so my hometown charity is #CHADTOUGH. Working with the champions and the Carr family, I have learned even more, and have been inspired even more. Knowing that DIPG kids face a 0% survival rate is just heartbreaking, and is just not acceptable. I will work tirelessly and fight for these brave young kids so that they can have hope one day. That can't happen when pediatric research is so incredibly underfunded. I'm inspired by the chadtough foundations work to fund research, build dedicated hospital centers, raise awareness, and so much more. I see how hard these kids fight, and it makes me want to fight even harder. Please help me if your able, and donate what you can afford. Even more so, please talk to me about some of these issues and ask questions. Get involved, help us spread awareness and make people aware that of the $5 Billion the NIH funds for research, only 4% goes towards pediatric research, and only 1% goes to pediatric brain cancer research. Brain cancer is the leading cancer in children, and cancer itself is the leading killer of our children in the world today.
