CURE Childhood Cancer Board of Directors Spotlight: Tammy Hunter

2617_8x10CURE Childhood Cancer is proud to introduce you to our newest addition to the CURE Board of Directors – Tammy Hunter. Tammy is a Partner at KPMG and we are grateful to have her on our team. Below Tammy shares a few insights into what led her become further involved with CURE Childhood Cancer.
“I never knew anyone that had a child with cancer.  I never knew how difficult the treatments were for pediatric cancer patients.  I never knew that there was a lack of funding for pediatric cancer research.  I never knew about CURE. At least I didn’t until April of 2008 when our daughter, Hayley, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma.  As a parent you never can forget having to watch your daughter lose her hair, lose weight and suffer through chemotherapy, stem cell transplant, surgery and radiation.  Yet through it all, our daughter, like other pediatric cancer patients, persevered and showed us what true strength and determination is.    Towards the end of Hayley’s treatment, we established the Hayley Hunter Research Fund through CURE so that we can help raise money for research that is being conducted right here in Atlanta.  I am very excited to now be a part of the CURE Board so that I can make an even bigger impact as we seek to cure childhood cancer in our lifetime.”
