Dominic Runghen was just 3 years old when he was diagnosed with cancer. His dad and mom, Nuvin & Conchita, were inspired to have a soccer fest to raise funds for childhood cancer. With the support of Canada Border Services and a passionate crew of friends and family, the first soccer fest came to life in 2008.
Their resolve to continue this endeaver was strengthened when Dominic’s friend Dejah Milne was also diagnosed with cancer.
Dejah unfortunately didn’t win his battle. Dominic, though missing his friend, is now a healthy, active teenager (who’s pretty damn good at soccer too!).
We must beat this disease so no child has to go through a battle with cancer. No child’s life, or quality of life after treatments, should be on the line.
If each of you that watch this could simply SHARE or MESSAGE this link
to 3 people you know and ask for them to donate $50 (or what they can) it would greatly assist the researchers at the Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program (MCCCRP).
If we can reach 1,000 people from everyone sharing that would be $50,000 which would go a long way.
The MCCCRP doctors are very specialized in childhood cancer research and are working on some amazing things. At the time a child is diagnosed at BC Children’s Hospital with cancer, those cancer cells make their way to the MCCCRP to determine the best treatments to beat that particular cancer. They aren’t able to do their work without vital funding.
What if the cure, everyone’s cure, is in a child?
Here’s the link again and thank you for your helping kick childhood cancer where it hurts!
