BENEFITING: NAOMI'S FUND INC
The pain of losing a child to cancer is an unspeakable tragedy that no one should ever have to experience. We want to honor the memory of lives lost too soon. Naomi’s Fund, inc., a Chicago based 501(c)(3) organization in partnership with the Chicago Parks Foundation and the Chicago Park District has a special place to keep the memory alive of these children while giving solace to the families who have lost so much. You can help by joining us in raising funds to place benches and plant trees overlooking Lake Michigan to celebrate the lives of children and young adults lost to cancer.
We want to honor the children, but also help ensure children in the future have hope for better outcomes. Dr. Navin Pinto, pediatric oncologist and researcher at the University of Chicago leads a promising research project. Dr. Pinto's research focuses on one of the most deadly cancers. Fifty percent, 50%, of all funds raised will be donated to Dr. Pinto to follow through on his research.
