We are THRILLED to announce the co-chairs of the 2023 Gold Gala:
Leila Hunter and Heather Jones!
Leila and Heather are two long-time supporters of CKc. We are so grateful to Leila, Heather, and the incredible Gold Gala committee for once again bringing their talent and passion to create change for kids fighting cancer. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!
Your support helps in the fight to end pediatric cancer.
Why? Because every day, parents with a child who has survived cancer are told their child may need hearing aids, have stunted growth, be developmentally delayed or will most likely be infertile. And their child is the lucky one. He is a survivor.
More than 95% of childhood cancer survivors will have a significant health-related issue by the time they are 45 years of age as a result of treatment. Other parents are told their child will not survive, because there are no more options to save her life. She is the unlucky one. She is a statistic. Each day, five sets of parents in the United States wake up, get dressed, and drive to their child's funeral.
These outcomes are not acceptable to the team at Cannonball Kids' cancer Foundation. We want to create treatment options for children battling cancer. Options that produce both survivors AND quality of life… not one or the other.
Together, CKc and our donors have awarded $3.4 million in research grants and created 684 treatment options for children.
