'Notes Left Behind' By Brooke and Keith Desserich.
Reading about Elena was heartbreaking and brought me to tears.
Her battle with brain cancer was an amazing one to say the least., and even though she lost the fight, at only 6 years old Elena began the war.
This war is against Pediatric Brain Cancer, one of the least optimistic forms of cancer possible.
If you believe that no child should have to suffer through this, or any other form of cancer, please help me out.
By working together and raising enough money we are helping fund amazing research that will find the cause and treatment of Brainstem Glioma.
'It started with just one child. It started with just one heart. Today, The Cure Starts Now Cancer Research Foundation (501c3 Federal Non-Profit) is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a “homerun” cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both pediatric and adult.
The Cure Starts Now represents a revolutionary new strategy in cancer research: one that fights cancer not according to numbers but instead based on knowledge and research. And isn’t that the way we’ll ultimately win the battle?
The Cure Starts Now’s mission is one that knows no boundaries and stops at no borders. It is an international effort of families, friends, businesses and even strangers, united in the desire to cure cancer, one child at a time. And it all started with one child, but today the inspiration is carried with us all.'
