THE STORY:

Princeton Area Community Foundation, Inc. wrote -

Join us in raising awareness of teen and childhood cancer, and be someone’s hero! Alex, nicknamed “Champ,” was diagnosed with brain cancer when he was 15 years old. After being told there were no more treatment options, he moved many hearts with a simple request. He asked if we could help make the time teen cancer patients spend in the hospital a bit brighter, and bring attention to their unique circumstances.

Through our partnership with the Princeton Area Community Foundation, the AMMF will provide gifts and technology to the oncology unit at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where Alex was a patient. We have compiled a “Teen Wish List,” and through our close partnership with CHOP, we are thrilled to be able to create some serious smiles. Our hope is to expand our efforts to serve even more institutions in the tri-state area. Because Alex cared so much for the other children and teens he saw suffering in the cancer community, we will also be contributing funds to various organizations that help support families of children afflicted with cancer.

The AMMF is committed to raising awareness for teen and childhood cancer. We were astounded to learn that only 4 cents out of every dollar spent by the National Institutes of Health is allocated to children’s cancer research. Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children. 1 in 5 children die from cancer, and 2/3 will develop complications from their treatments, including secondary cancers. Astonishingly, only 3 new childhood cancer drugs have been developed in the last twenty years.

Alex passed away on 11/11/2014, when he was only 16 years old. His hope was to help other teens and children battling cancer. We can raise awareness, lift the hearts of these warriors, and fulfill Alex’s wish. Let’s do it together! Join our team and fight for our kids…like a Champ.
