The month of September was Pediatric Cancer Awareness month. And this cause is something that means a lot to us in the WonderFold Wagon family.
43 children are diagnosed with cancer everyday in the US, while more than 40,000 children undergo treatment for cancer each year. The children who survive are twice as likely to suffer from chronic conditions following remission.
Unfortunately, only 4% of the annual budget for the National Cancer Institute is towards childhood cancer research.
This is why we have chosen to donate our wagon to the auction hosted by the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. PCRF is a pioneer in eliminating childhood cancer through their ability to identify and fund cutting edge research. They exclusively target funds toward emerging and breakthrough opportunities.
We have also donated to the Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for children to use for transportation during treatment. Lurie Children is relentlessly pursuing better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat childhood illnesses and support their patients and families. They are on a mission to provide the promise of a cure, a safer space, and a healthier future for every child.
We are so happy our wagons can be used to provide a safe and comfortable space for little ones everywhere.
We love hearing from YOU about where we should donate next! If you have any ideas of organizations or charities that would benefit from our program, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
