CURE Childhood Cancer is proud to welcome Kevin Karem as a new member of our Board of Directors. Karem is currently a Microbiologist for the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and has been an important addition to our team of Directors.
Kevin shares a few thoughts on why he is involved with CURE:
“I often thought about how devastating it would be to have a child with cancer. Then there we were, a CT scan and the horror of a tumor, clearly imaged in her perfect little chest: Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. We were fortunate, and today Christina is cancer free. I want to help other children and their families to be as fortunate. At one clinic visit Christina was asked to state three wishes. Her first wish was, ‘I wish cancer never existed.’ I want to help CURE make this wish come true.”
