Why Relay for Jack? –ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
We want to not only create a trend in events committed to funding urgently needed research to save children’s lives, but also to encourage our government and larger cancer organizations in the United States to greater support to pediatric research. We believe that with more awareness for our children with brain cancer for whom there are currently no solutions, funding for pediatric research will receive more consideration, and that it will be consensual among Americans that the resulting advances in medicine, biology, and survival rates for our children are worthy of this increased consideration. There has been no progress for our children with brain cancer in modern clinical record, spanning well over the last 50 years.
