Dear Family and Friends,
Many of you have kids or grandkids of your own. Now imagine hearing the words “ I am sorry but your child has an aggressive form of brain cancer and there is no cure at this time.” No parent or child should ever hear these unimaginable words! There should always be a chance for a cure! Welcome to the donation page for our first annual fundraiser to raise money for research to help find a cure for pediatric brain cancer. Our beloved son Luca passed away from this terrible disease 14 months ago and not a day goes by that we don’t think about him and miss him beyond words. Unfortunately each year far too many children are dying from this terrible disease and This is absolutely not acceptable and makes us so sad and angry. Brain cancer is a monster of a disease at any age but it’s especially devastating for an innocent child and their family to go through this unimaginable struggle. In the last couple of years pediatric brain cancer has become the number one cause of death for a child who gets diagnosed with cancer. The truth is that very little progress has been made over the last 30 years in improving the survival rates with brain cancer. This is why it is so important that we come together to raise funds and awareness as more research is needed to find more unconventional ways of combating this disease. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your contributions and support for this incredibly important cause. We are blessed that we have one of the best children’s hospitals in the United States and some of the best doctors in the world at Rady’s. Now let’s raise some money for these beautiful kids! Join us and let’s fight to put an end to Pediatric Brain Cancer! Thank you!
