Dear Hupy and Abraham,
Thank you for your gift to CureSearch for Children’s Cancer.
Your contribution is an investment in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day.
In recent years, many children’s cancers have seen significant medical breakthroughs. Fifty years ago, the overall cure rate for children’s cancer was less than 10%. Today, it is nearly 90%. This progress is thanks in part to generous donations from individuals around the country. However, there is still much work left to be done. One in eight children diagnosed with cancer will lose his or her battle with the disease. For many types of children’s cancer, the cure rates remain low and have seen no improvement in decades. And for those who do survive, nearly 60% will face late effects of their cancer treatment.
At CureSearch, we work every day to improve childhood cancer treatment and cure rates to deliver the potential for childhood cancer patients to live long, healthy lives. Your contribution helps to support collaborative clinical trials at hospitals around at hospitals around the country as well as basic and translational research for new cancer therapies. With your help, we are fighting for the future of every parent dreams of and every child deserves.
Thank you again for your support.
President and CEO
