According to the American Cancer Society, after accidents, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 14. In the past couple of decades, childhood cancer rates have been rising slightly. In 2021, over 10,000 children in the US will receive a cancer diagnosis in 2021, and just over one thousand children under the age of 15 are expected to die from cancer.
Families suffer and our community suffers when childhood cancer research is consistently underfunded. Our agency is taking a stand to support Cure 4 The Kids Foundation in an effort to advance cures of childhood diseases. Founded in 2007, Nevada’s Childhood Cancer Treatment Center was created with the intention of being a “center of excellence with a regional focus that equips kids and their families to fight diseases, where no kid gets turned away. ” This makes them uniquely Cure 4 The Kids Foundation.
Their impact and community roots have been seen and felt, both locally and nationally. Cure 4 The Kids Foundation earned the #4 among the nation’ top 50 Non Profit organizations to work for, by Non Profit Times in 2021 and for the last two years won ‘Best of Las Vegas’ Best Cancer Treatment Center and Best Charity Event (Circus Couture).
The funds we help raise for this noble organization will go towards ensuring that no child is ever turned away from treatment for financial reasons. Our goal of $500 helps provide life-saving medications and treatments. We are committed to raising awareness in our community and giving our customers, partners, and anybody else that cares the ability to make an impact themselves. We will donate $10 on your behalf to our current Community Cause campaign for every person you recommend to us.
