Running for ChadTough!
September 16, 2017
Every child deserves to survive cancer. Period. The ChadTough Foundation is committed to raising awareness and funding research to increase the survival rate of pediatric brain cancer, the leading cause of cancer related deaths among children. The foundation was established in 2015 to honor five-year-old Chad, who eventually lost his fight with the deadliest form of pediatric brain cancer, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma or DIPG. Breakthroughs are finally on the horizon! Due to advancements in neurosurgical techniques and recent acquisition of tumor tissue for research, and through funding from foundations like The ChadTough Foundation, there are numerous clinical trials that are finally showing promise. I'm proud to have joined the fight and look forward to the day a cure is found!
