      http://bit.ly/meetwilliam This is William. He is 14 years old. Ten years ago, just after his fourth birthday, he was diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer called pleuropulmonary blastoma. He had to have surgery to remove tumors from his lungs followed by months of chemotherapy to make sure it stayed away. Will survived his battle with childhood cancer, but many do not. In the U.S., one in five children diagnosed with cancer will not survive. During Will's treatment, his family started hosting their own St. Baldrick's event to raise money for lifesaving childhood cancer treatment. In the words of Will: "Research money goes a long way, who knows, it could maybe find a cure for cancer!" Read more of Will's story: http://bit.ly/meetwilliam.

        http://www.stbaldricks.org/stand-up-to-cancer The St. Baldrick's Foundation takes you on a behind-the-scenes look at the Stand Up to Cancer red carpet, just moments before the St. Baldrick's Foundation and Stand Up to Cancer collaboration is publicly announced. Over the next four years, the St. Baldrick's Foundation and Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) will commit a total of $14.5 million to form the SU2C-St. Baldrick's Pediatric Cancer Dream Team. This is the first Dream Team focused solely on pediatric cancer research since SU2C's inception in 2008. The pairing of the two organizations brings together two of the world's leading cancer research groups in a unified mission to accelerate the discoveries of new advances for treating pediatric cancer. "It is through the ongoing efforts of St. Baldrick's volunteers who continue to stand up to cancer, and the more than $32 million they raised this year, that we are able to announce this landmark collaboration," says Kathleen Ruddy, executive director of the St. Baldrick's Foundation. "We are confident that the innovative approach of the Pediatric Cancer Dream Team, along with other St. Baldrick's funded research will help quicken the pace in our ultimate goal to someday find cures for all childhood cancers."

          http://bit.ly/sbfandsu2c "I'm not scared of anything because... 1. I'm a ninja 2. Ninjas aren't scared of anything 3. That's pretty much it." In 2006, doctors gave Justin a 30% chance of being alive in 5 years. They said if he relapsed, he wouldn't survive, but Justin has proven them wrong. When he learned of his third relapse in October 2011, Justin responded, "I would do anything to make the cancer get out of my body. I will never be too tired to stop fighting—let's go do this thing." Justin recently relapsed for the fourth time and underwent MIBG treatment. His most recent scans show no detectable signs of cancer. Justin's family is in the process of determining his next course of treatment. Six years after diagnosis, and after four relapses, he continues to face each new challenge with a relentless determination. Justin is a St. Baldrick's Foundation 2012 Ambassador Kid. This video aired on the Stand Up to Cancer Broadcast on September 7, 2012 to raise awareness for childhood cancers and announce the collaboration between the St. Baldrick's Foundation and Stand Up to Cancer in the formation of a Pediatric Cancer Dream Team.

            Eight years ago, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation became an independent charity – with the goal of finding cures for childhood cancers, and making sure the greatest percentage of every dollar raised is used for that purpose. Today we have grown to be the largest volunteer-driven charity for childhood cancer research, funding more grants than any organization besides the U.S. Government. As we considered how to visually reflect today’s St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a new logo started to unfold. Everyone may see something slightly different in our new logo mark. The evolution was simple – we wanted to respect the Irish roots of our beginnings as a St. Patrick’s Day event – while showing today’s broader St. Baldrick’s identity. The “S” and “B” represent “St. Baldrick’s,” while also forming the shape of a four-leaf clover. The four “leaves” of the clover represent you -- the volunteers, donors, researchers and families who come together under the St. Baldrick’s name to fund and conduct the best childhood cancer research. Finally, the word “Foundation” is prominent – reminding the world at large that we are more than a head-shaving event, we are leaders. We – all of us together – are leading the charge against childhood cancer – and we intend to win. Please take a moment to check out our new logo – we’re grateful that you’re a part of it.

              http://bit.ly/SBFGrants_V Through the vigorous efforts of volunteers and supporters, this summer the St. Baldrick's Foundation was able to fund a record-breaking total of $23 million in grants towards lifesaving childhood cancer research. "Every single child in the world who gets treated and survives is a beneficiary of the research that's funded by groups like St. Baldrick's... Fifty years ago, childhood cancer cure rates were 20% at best. Today, overall rates have increased to as much as 90% for some cancers, and that did not happen without research. And, research can’t happen without you." - Robert J. Arceci, M.D., Ph.D. With 175,000 children diagnosed with cancer worldwide each year, childhood cancer research is critical. As the largest private funder of pediatric cancer research grants, St. Baldrick’s is not only committed to supporting research that will find cures but studies that focus on developing less toxic treatments and ensuring a healthier life for survivors. With this new funding, the Foundation has granted more than $101 million since becoming an independent charity in 2005.

              • Why Fund Childhood Cancer Research?

                61 Plays / / 0 Comments

                http://bit.ly/Katieandcancer Katie is one reason. Dr. Yustein met Katie during his first fellowship year at Johns Hopkins; she had just been diagnosed with childhood cancer. "The only options we had were chemotherapy and radiation therapy -- these would only provide extended period of life, but no cure," Yustein said. "I realized then what we can or can't do. It put things into perspective. This was reality." Why fund childhood cancer research? Because it can CHANGE this reality for children with cancer.

He was given a 30% chance of being alive in five years. They said if he relapsed, he wouldn’t survive. But Justin has proved them wrong. Five years after diagnosis, and after four relapses, he is still fighting. Treatment and surgery took the sight from his left eye, but not his spirit.

In the 1950s we cured only 20% of kids and today, we cure 75% of kids. It took a lot of hard work, but I think of it like a spring. If you're pushing a spring, the first part of it is very easy. But to finish the job, for us, specifically, to go from 75% cure to 100% cure, it's going to require more time and energy and work than it did to get where we are today..."
