Since 1997 the Michael Cuccione Foundation has been dedicated to raising funds for Childhood Cancer Research and supporting children along with their families through such adversity. We can't treat children like adults. In the past the majority of research dollars were spent on adult forms of cancer and little was being done at the childhood level in British Columbia.
This has all changed because of the important seed late Michael Cuccione planted to fund young researchers for childhood cancer and the important legacy that continues. The Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program is established at the Child & Family Research Institute at BC Children's Hospital. This is the only Childhood Cancer Research Program of its kind in British Columbia. We are blessed with some of the most outstanding researchers in the world that are discovering more breakthroughs and saving more children's lives each day.
What is being learnt at the childhood stage is also helping adult cancers. Research is the only way to finding a cure and we won't stop until a cure is found. Thank you for making a difference in the life of a child!
As Michael phrased, "ONE PERSON CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH, BUT TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE".
Please help us to keep Michael's dream alive, and support the Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program. Let's do it for the children.
