Help write a better story for children fighting cancer
Childhood cancer patients often follow a similar storyline: diagnosis, treatment, remission. But not everyone follows that path. We want to write a better story – one without toxic treatments and with more living heroes. Join patients, survivors, families, physicians, researchers, and Foundation supporters as we pen the next chapter of childhood cancer research at the 2017 Believe Ball.
Currently, there is a standard narrative when it comes to childhood cancer: diagnosis and treatment with chemotherapy or radiation. Even when children reach remission, many develop long-term side effects or secondary cancers as a result of these harsh treatments.
We want a different journey for these heroes – one without toxic treatments, fear of relapse, or loss of life. We need to write a better story for children fighting cancer.
This elegant and inspirational evening will feature a cocktail reception, seated dinner, silent auction and raffle, entertainment, and compelling stories from childhood cancer patients and their families.
The Believe Ball will support our mission of funding childhood cancer research that will lead to the discovery of more targeted and less toxic treatments for children and raise awareness for childhood cancer, cancer research, and clinical trials.
Together, we can write a better story for these heroes!
