I'm running to raise money for childhood cancer research and clinical trials that are helping to save kids lives today. Please watch the video to see how the money raised through this campaign will affect children fighting cancer today.
Childhood cancer is the #1 disease-related cause of death in U.S. children. Every week, two classrooms of kids are diagnosed with cancer. And every week, one classroom of them die from cancer. While some cancers like Leukemia have seen improvements in survival, many other cancers specific to children have seen little to no improvements in over 30 years.
Because childhood cancers don't get the research dollars from the U.S. Gov't or private industry that adult cancers get, it is left to private, childhood cancer-specific foundations to supplement the researchers and oncologists who want to find new treatments that can save the lives of kids.
Please give what you can, and I promise to Run for Max and all the children past, present, and future who battle cancer.
