The Vice President asks all of us around the United States who are concerned with helping find a cure for cancer to gather together at your Regional Summit for the Cancer Moonshot Initiative on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 at a location near you. Locally to Jack’s Angels Foundation, the Los Angeles Regional Summit will occur at The Master’s College in Santa Clarita, CA between 9am and 1pm on that date. All Summits will take place simultaneously with the Vice President’s event in Washington D.C. We are calling all advocates, survivors, caregivers, researchers, philanthropists, and local officials to join with the Office of the Vice President to participate and lend your voices to help accelerate our finding a cure for cancer.

Visit http://relayforkids.org for the full scoop on our new fundraising program, relay races benefiting urgently needed pediatric cancer research in California. First event is Saturday, May 28, unconfirmed for Vasquez Rocks County Park in Agua Dulce, CA.
Our goals for 2016-17 include creating reserve research funds of $1M for each group of our California researchers in the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium, that money is not a hindrance to the creativity of scientific work, and ultimately to finding solutions faster to deadly tumors like DIPG with a 0% survival rate.
