CURE Childhood Cancer is pleased to welcome Elesha Bateman to the Board of Directors. Elesha has been a valuable member of the “A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes” Committee and currently works for Bruel & Kjaer as a Project Manager.
Elesha shares a few thoughts on why she is involved with CURE:
“When a friend’s son was diagnosed with leukemia, I was desperate to do something to help. Prayers and the occasional meal seemed far too inadequate for their long journey. My search led me to become a volunteer for CURE. The more I learned through CURE and the more families I met struggling with this horrible disease, the more dedicated I became to the cause. Today I am an unapologetic advocate for less toxic treatments that are actually developed for children- treatments that will hopefully result in fewer long-term side effects as more children are cured and move into adulthood. While offering that hope, I love that CURE also supports these families with programs that address their needs during treatment, after treatment or after the death of their precious child. I truly believe that with the dedication and determination that CURE continually demonstrates, we will see a cure for some types of childhood cancer in my lifetime. I am wholly committed to doing whatever it takes and I am so honored to serve on the CURE Board of Directors.”
