Mr B's Children's Cancer Research
Organized by: Jody Williquette
EVENT DATE Oct 03, 2015
Cancer is the leading disease cause of death for children in America, yet childhood cancer research receives only 4% of total funding for cancer research. There are over a dozen major types of childhood cancers, and countless subtypes. Most are different from adult cancers and require unique treatment. Worldwide, every 3 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer. In the United States, 1 in 5 children diagnosed will not survive. Of those who survive, 2 out of 3 will suffer long-term effects from treatment.
To improve these statistics, we are joining together on October 3rd at Mr. B's Roadhouse to shave our heads to show support for children with cancer, increase awareness and raise $100,000.00 for Children's Cancer Research through the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
