The Cure4Cam Childhood Cancer Foundation seeks to raise community awareness about childhood cancers and supports the development of new and more humane therapies for children with these diseases.
Today, standard therapies for children with cancer involve highly toxic and damaging treatments that cause painful and embarrassing side-effects, forced separation from families and friends, have devastating short and long-term psychological impact, and produce permanent health issues. These unfavorable effects are not well known in the general population and, ultimately, many of these children do not survive. We believe in a future in which cancer treatment for children will be gentler and more effective.
New and highly inspirational therapies, which specifically target each patient’s individual cancer cells, are within reach but seriously underfunded. By bringing breakthroughs in childhood cancer research to the forefront, we can raise public concern and, subsequently, funds needed to support research grants and new clinical studies. We need your help. As Cameron said, “The best kind of inspiration is the kind that makes you want to save a life.”
