Kelly's Crusaders are Heading for the Cure with your help!
Dear Family & Friends,
As you can see VABC (Voices Against Brain Cancer) is now a part of Head for the Cure, which is another non-profit Brain Cancer organization. Head for the Cure received the 2019 platinum Seal of Transparency and has two primary beneficiaries -1. The Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, which is a part of the National Institute of Health; 2. Brain Cancer and advocacy groups across the nation. Since we are participating in the NY event, our funds will go directly to Lenox Hill Neurosurgery.
This year, Kelly’s Crusaders has decided not to participate in the annual run. Instead we opted to do a virtual fundraiser for supporting brain cancer. So, enjoy your morning coffee on October 19th, and hopefully, making a small donation to Kelly’s Crusaders.
I am asking for your support to secure funding for research and to help those diagnosed with brain cancer.
Here are some quick statistics:
• Brain Cancer has the highest per patient initial care for any cancer group
• Pediatric brain tumors are the leading cause among children and adolescents surpassing leukemia
• 700,00 in the US have a brain tumor – 28,000 are children. An additional 86,000 will be diagnosed with a brain tumor this year.
ANY amount (that you can donate ($5? $15?) is most appreciated. Whatever you feel comfortable with. This event is just as much about raising awareness so please share if you feel inspired to do so.
