BENEFITING: NAOMI'S FUND INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 27, 2015
Naomi’s Fund and our partner, the Chicago Parks Foundation, are asking for your financial donation to establish a place of solace for families who have lost children to cancer, and help Chicagoans at large consider the tragedy of lives ended too soon and the need for more funds targeted specifically at pediatric cancer. The site will include a grove of trees and engraved benches on a plot of land allocated by the Chicago Parks Foundation, directly south of the 39rd St. beach house.
Did you know that despite a decrease in overall cancer deaths, the survival rates of the most deadly pediatric cancers have not improved? Or that a significant portion of the money needed by medical researchers working on pediatric cancer comes from private donations?
Naomi’s Fund exists to raise funds and increase awareness of the need for research designed to prevent and cure cancers that kill children and young adults. We are a Chicago-based 501(c) (3) non-profit organization; your donations are taxdeductible. Please join us in our fight to give young cancer victims a better chance for survival.
Thank you for being a part of the pediatric cancer solution!
