Michael's story has been one amazing one, but today is about him reaching double digits! Michael's request was to create his own team, "THE NOTORIOUS CURE" after we visited CHOP Oncology in August to find out about this great cause. This is perfect way to turning "10" September 26th and help raise money where most of his first years of life was spent fighting childhood cancer at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. As we secretly fear the unknown since his tumor (Glioma Astrocytoma) was inoperable, we are blessed to be chemo free and no re-growth for 5 years in September. Please come join our team and fund lifesaving research and innovative care at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Join me to help CHOP make a difference today!
Why this is so important to me:
Patients Need Us Parents shouldn’t have to hear the words “your child has cancer.” However, 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they’re 20 years old.
Breakthroughs Are Upon Us CHOP’s Center for Childhood Cancer Research is one of the most distinguished research programs in the nation. Every day, CHOP’s Cancer Center team is redefining what a cancer diagnosis means for a child. The center offers the most advanced therapies available anywhere in the world, including cutting-edge clinical trials that reprogram the body’s own immune system to fight cancer.
