Coins 4 Kids
Research is the only way to develop new treatments
that can help children from all over the world.
If there is no research there is no cure.

Project Oprah - 2007
Ak Oprah to do a show on Childhood Cancer
It's easy.....write to Oprah with the above link to her website's "ideas section". Tell her how amazing these kids are and share their stories of courage. Tell her that Childhood Cancer is the #1 killer of children, more than Pediatric Aids, Asthma, Diabetes, and Cystic Fibrosis combined. When pleading the cause for research funding remember to mention that:
Awareness is one of the most important ways to find a cure for childhood cancers!
There's more you can do:
Even a small $5 donation can help! Because Neuroblastoma funding is so limited, every dollar counts --
Click Here to Donate
Coins 4 Kids and the CNCF can quickly get your donations to the most promising research projects so that research scientists and doctors can find new treatments and cures. Unlike large, broad organizations, donations made through Coins 4 Kids are earmarked for Neuroblastoma research, where they can have the biggest impact! Just a note: *(Although large cancer societies do great things, they historically have not utilized their resources for Pediatric Cancer. The American Cancer Society provided only 1.85% of dollars spent on research , to be spread over all 12 types of childhood cancers. (*July 2005, Research Department , American Cancer Society, Inc.) Cure Search, the foundation supporting the largest children’s oncology group in North America which supports the clinical and biological research at over 200 participating institutions and treats about 90% of pediatric patients spends less than 5% of every dollar raised on neuroblastoma.

Conquer Childhood Cancer Act: sample letter
General form sample letter
The Conquer Childhood Cancer Act - 2007 is desperately needed to counteract the historical lack of funding for Pediatric Cancer Research. Many children's lives will depend on it. This important legislation will provide critical federal resources for the treatment, prevention and cure of childhood cancer. It would bring hope to more than 12,500 children who will be diagnosed with cancer this year and give meaning to the courage of the thousands of children who have come before.
