Support TOKC on May 5th
Childhood cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. and only 4% of U.S. federal funding is dedicated to childhood cancer research. Even in these challenging times, TOKC remains committed to raising awareness and funds for pediatric cancer and providing HOPE and JOY to kids with cancer. HOPE through fundraising for research, which is of utmost importance because without it there will be no end to this dreadful disease and JOY through visiting local hospitals and bedsides with events and activities designed to help provide immediate relief, respite and joy to cancer patients and their families. And we are able to do that with YOUR support.
The Triumph Over Kid Cancer Foundation was established in 2010 by 17-year-old James Ragan and his sister, Mecklin. James was diagnosed at the age of 13 with Osteosarcoma, a form of pediatric bone cancer. Recognizing that his condition was likely incurable, James was determined to make a difference in the health and survival of other children with cancer.
“I want you to remember my face. Because my face is the face of every kid that dies from a pediatric cancer that isn’t profitable to cure. My face is the face of every kid that dies because the drugs don’t have a rigorous business plan demonstrating demand and self sustainability.
And every day you ignore a cancer like pediatric cancer, you cost this country the energy and leadership of thousands of kids just like me with infinite potential to secure the future of our country.”
-James A. Ragan, 2012
