CURE Childhood Cancer is proud to announce our 5th named fund, the Trenton W. Kindred Research Fund. This fund was created in honor of Trenton Kindred, who is the son of Ginger and Greg Kindred. Ginger Kindred is one of CURE’s board members and Greg is on CURE’s advisory board.
The Trenton W. Kindred Research Fund has a very specific purpose. Proceeds from the Trenton W. Kindred Research Fund will be used to support childhood cancer research – supporting the doctors and scientists of the Aflac Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Services of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University School of Medicine. We believe it is critically important to find a CURE for this beastly disease in our lifetime. Trenton was a fighter even at the young age of 1, when he was diagnosed. He is still a fighter with a determination like we’ve never seen. Trenton has shown us howto embrace all the small joys of life. Our hope is that we WILL find a cure for Neuroblastoma, and we will be able to say that we did it because of Trenton and the support from our friends and family. We feel in our hearts that Trenton will inspire other childhood cancer patients to live life to the fullest. But first we must help find a cure for those who are suffering.
Trenton’s mom, Ginger Kindred has this to say on why they wanted to start the Trenton W. Kindred Research Fund:
“When Greg and I found out recently that “8” more of our cancer kids we’ve met through this journey had died in the past month, we knew we weren’t doing all we could for CURE. In fact, one of our Oncologist said that “it’s been terrible, as if it’s raining childhood cancer.” We knew we had to do more! Therefore, in honor of Trenton and what he has endured, and ALL these children and their fight, we want to expedite our funding efforts to find a cure sooner than later! We do not want to see other children suffer through what our son has been through, and all these children around us fighting so hard for their lives. Every little bit counts….thanks for supporting us in this fight.”
