What Have We Done, What Are We Doing?
The Cannonball Kids cancer Foundation was founded June 10, 2014, by Cannon's parents, Michael and Melissa Wiggins. In its first year, through hard work, dedication and worldwide support, the foundation, achieved $100K in donations, which was successfully put towards funding a "first-in-children" pediatric brain cancer clinical trial at Augusta University, Georgia Cancer Center in Augusta, Georgia. In less than two years after receiving its 501 (c)(3) designation, CKc has now actively funded $300,000 in research trials, directly impacting the lives of children who have been given little to no hope for survival.
The Cannonball Kids' cancer Foundation team and supporters show no sign of slowing down. The foundation has released a book, "Thankful for the Fight", an inspiring story about Cannon's journey and his family's fight to save his life. All proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards funding a new pediatric cancer research project. To purchase the book visit https://www.createspace.com/5409855.
If you are interested in promoting the book via media outlets or would like to request interviews/appearances, please contact Debra Brett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, the Cannonball Kids' cancer Card Club continues to generate smiles and donations worldwide. At last count, CKc Card Club events have been hosted in 40 states across the U.S.A. and nine countries worldwide. Thousands of dollars have been raised for pediatric cancer research! However, most importantly, smiles and inspiration have been delivered to children fighting for their lives in hospitals, both domestically and internationally. Learn how you can host a Card Club event in your community.
Of course, securing donations to fund pediatric cancer research projects remains our priority. Make a donation today. Thank you for helping us Cannonball Kids' cancer!
