May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month and Chappaqua’s own A Kids’ Brain Tumor Cure Foundation (AKBTC) has a lot going on this month!
A Kids’ Brain Tumor Cure (a non-profit organization, 501(c)(3)), is partnering with two other pediatric cancer foundations, the Ty Lewis Campbell Foundation (Carmel) and Solving Kids Cancer (NYC) to fund a novel, cutting-edge clinical trial which uses immunotherapy to treat children with recurrent brain tumors who have exhausted all other current treatment options.
Researchers from best-in-class Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Johns Hopkins Hospital, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute will collaborate on this trial.
A Kids’ Brain Tumor Cure’s portion of the funding for this trial was made possible by Think Fit For Kids 2016, which raised over $115,000 for pediatric brain cancer research! Thank you Think Fit For Kids loyal supporters!
To honor children currently battling brain tumors, raise awareness about this orphan disease and raise funds for pediatric brain cancer research, AKBTC has created baseball hats for sale with the #ChappaCure.
This community has shown it’s commitment to finding the cure for children’s brain tumors by purchasing hundreds of #ChappaCure hats and wearing them around town. The entire Horace Greeley Lacrosse Team purchased the hats as well as many of the Girl Scout Troops, local merchants, students, parents and grandparents.
We were even lucky enough to get President Bill Clinton to promise to wear his hat proudly! To purchase a hat, please contact
On the last day of Brain Cancer Awareness Month, Tuesday, May 31st, Crabtree’s Kittle House will host their Sparkle For A Cause dinner event with 30% of all proceeds benefitting A Kids’ Brain Tumor Cure.
