Sue Scheff: I Care I Cure - Bring awareness to a gentler cure for childhood cancer
The I Care I Cure Foundation supports the development of, and raises public awareness about, cutting-edge, targeted therapies for childhood cancer, so that the treatment of childhood cancer will be gentler and more tolerable.
We want to challenge the public's acceptance that treatment for childhood cancer requires painful and embarrassing side-effects and life-long health disabilities, isolation from friends and family, and short and long-term psychological devastation. By educating the public about scientific breakthroughs in genetic childhood cancer research that are within reach but seriously underfunded, we can quickly raise money to fund research grants and provide seed money to researchers for new studies.
By seeing how close we are to more humane treatment for childhood cancer, we know the public will demand better treatments, NOW.
One more child's life that is lost to cancer is one too many!
