Karter’s Cancer Crusade
Karter is 6 years old and he has been fighting as a true warrior for 276 days at the time of this message. His little body has been fighting a demon called DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). A tumor on the pons of his brainstem that is incurable and inoperable. Everyday he is fighting to live. There is no cure. Trials are the only hope and we are hoping they will extend his life long enough to find a cure.
We want to keep Karter with us and we will fight and advocate for his as long as we can. We are raising funds to help Karter and his parents stay together throughout this devastating journey no matter what it brings.
Did you know that Childhood Cancer Receives approximately 4% of the budget allocated for all cancers and DIPG receives about 1% of the 4%. The funding, rating, treatments and protocols have not changed since the 1960’s. While the world evolves and advances Childhood Cancer treaments, protocols and systems have remained the same for 6 deccades.
The world is largely unaware of plight of children with cancer or how grueling, harsh and damaging the treatments they receiven for this horrid disease are. Their fight and lives have been unrecognized and ignored for 60 years. Our goal is to change this. These children and their lives matter and they deserve recognition and action. DIPG is the leading cause of death in children with brain cancer andthe number of diagnosis continue to grow.
We are hosting this golf tournament to help raise the funds for any expenses that may arise. Karter’s parents, Nicole and Richard, are both on leave from their jobs so that they can care for Karter’s ever changing needs. We are asking businesses to support this important and worthy yet ignored and unrecognized cause.
If you would like to network and have some fun while raising awareness about this very important cause please Lottie Fraser at 587-598-1146 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to discuss these opportunities with you.
Thank you for your support.
