CURE Childhood Cancer is pleased to welcome Lynne O’Brien to the Board of Directors. Lynne works for the Coca-Cola Company and is the Director, Corporate Real Estate.
“Our oldest daughter Kristen was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma in December 2006. Her treatment protocol was developed by doctors here in Atlanta so we have personally seen the power of research in action. We are so grateful for all that CURE has done to support her and our family and so many other families just like us. While we never want to see anyone diagnosed with cancer, the research dollars directed to pediatric cancer are severely lacking. As Kristen’s treatment is coming to successful conclusion, we felt that we needed to step up and give back, so that one day pediatric cancer will no longer be a life-threatening diagnosis. Children with cancer deserve a cure and CURE is working to make that cure a reality.”
