Why Do You Support CURE?

“I support CURE because they support me – from meals in the hospital to a beautiful tribute for my 5 month old son after he passed away.  In fact, CURE has made me see that I should be doing more – and this new year I intend too. Thank you CURE…”

“Why Do You Support CURE?”

“Because my son, Jordan fought Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor for 7 years before he passed away last December. He was an amazing child and an amazing fighter and now he’s my Angel. No parent should have to bury their child.”

Why Do You Support CURE?

“My son was diagnosed Sept. 27 2009 with 2 types of Lymphoma (Berkett’s Non Hodges and Large B Cell stage 4). We were in the hospital for 3 months and CURE was there supporting not only the children but the parents.  CURE came every Thursday and provided dinner.  In times like that every little bit helps. I would support them even if my child didn’t have cancer. No child should have to endure the pain these kids do with Chemo, LP’s, etc – I pray that there will be a cure to childhood cancer and sooner then later.”

“Why Do You Support CURE?”

“I support CURE because my daughter, Bridget was diagnosed with All, a type of Leukemia a month before she turned 5. After 2 and half years she finished treatment on January 2 of this year. There are thousands of kids like Bridget that are still in treatment or will be diagnosed with childhood cancer this year. We have lost so many of these…”

Why Do You Support CURE?

“I support CURE because, I’m a Childhood Cancer survivor! In the spring of 1973, my mom took me to my Pediatrician for a check up.  While he was examining the area around my stomach, a very serious look came across his face. He called his colleague in to confirm what he had discovered & that was when they told my mom to take me to Egleston immediately. After a CT-Scan & some x-rays my parents worst fears were confirmed. It was a Stage Three Neuroblastoma tumor in the area between my abdominal aorta & kidney. Everyone who knows me says that it’s a miracle that I’m alive because they know what I went through.  So the main reason why I support CURE is because, my life is a miracle.”

Why Do You Support CURE Childhood Cancer?

“I support CURE Childhood Cancer because my son Ryan was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in 2007 right after he turned 1. He went through chemo, and they removed most of the tumor. Right now it’s not safe to treat him with any chemo because there aren’t enough cancer cells left (if they did they could give him a secondary cancer.) He’s almost 4 now, going from scan to scan waiting to hear that he’s cancer free! No one should have to go through this!”

“I support the Cure because they (and amazing doctors) saved me and helped me through stage 4 Neuroblastoma! I’m a survivor, and 10 years later I’m still going strong, I hope that this will help others be optimistic during cancer and all the pain they go through! Thank you Cure!”
