Supporting our ICSJ Dolphins!
In 2016, two students from our children's school, ICSJ, started treatment for brain tumors at Lurie Children's Hospital. Our community rallied together to show support for Angela and Crisanto and their families, and participated as a team at the 2017 Run for Gus. This summer, on July 26, we will gather again and participate in the Young Associates Board’s (YAB) 16th annual Run for Gus 5K Run/1 Mile Walk, which raises funds to advance research and support services for patients with brain tumors, at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
Pediatric brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children and are fatal for almost half of those diagnosed. Yet, only $1 million is given annually for pediatric brain tumor research by government agencies. YAB has raised more than $1.5 million to date to further this lifesaving cause.
Angela and Crisanto are examples to all of us of courage, perseverance -- and the incredible importance of ongoing medical research. Please support our efforts by joining our team or making a gift today! Any amount will make a difference, and all donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children’s Foundation.
With your help, more children battling brain tumors can receive the best healthcare possible and the opportunity to reach their greatest potential. Thank you!
