This is Michael. Only a few hours remain in the year 2015, and all of us at Cannonball Kids' cancer Foundation want to thank each of you that support the Foundation and wish you a safe and Happy New Year.
We have a lot to be thankful for --- Cannon remains NED, our Foundation has reached tens of thousands literally throughout the world and we made our first clinical trial research grant.
So much has changed for us as we continue to grow and raise more funding for research so that we can end the horror of cancer in children. And we will do it. But, one thing has not changed. And this is what drives our Foundation: Every single morning in the US, and numerous other times throughout Europe, Asia and Australia, mothers and fathers get up and get dressed for their child's funeral. A child lost unnecessarily and so unjustly to cancer. Seven children per day in the US, and more worldwide. What is more horrible and devastating in life than burying a child because medical research is not advanced or known to end the disease? Or new treatments, less harsh therapies or ones that don't cause secondary cancers aren't available? How many times must parents with a child diagnosed with cancer hear these words: "I'm sorry, there is nothing more we can do"?
Please consider a tax deductible donation to Cannonball Kids' cancer Foundation today. We will fund more research this year and in the future so that someday... someday, cancer in children will not exist. cancer in children is wrong. It is unjust. And it is unnecessary.
For all the children unjustly lost to cancer, and for all those parents that have devastatingly buried a child lost to cancer, we honor you every day at Cannonball Kids' cancer Foundation. Your loss will forever motivate us.
