Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program Progressing Michael's Dream 2018

It was a dream that started with a very incredible and brave young man. Even though Michael Cuccione was going through his own personal battle with childhood cancer he chose not to let his cancer define him, but instead taking it head on also started to raise money for childhood cancer research. Starting the Michael Cuccione Foundation to realize his dream that no child should ever have to go through what he has gone through. He spoke on stage in front of thousands spreading his message. "One person can only do so much, but together we can make a difference." he would preach. Even with every ounce of fight he had, in the end the side effects of cancer treatments took Michael. But what cancer couldn't do is stop the dream. The Michael Cuccione Foundation has picked up where Michael was forced to leave off and they've continued his amazing work. Michael believed that researchers needed funding and without them we'll never find a cure for childhood cancer. 23 years later Michael's vision is coming true. And while childhood cancer cure rates have increased to 80%, the treatments that are used on children is quite fierce, particularly if the cancer relapses, sometimes causing long term side effects into a childs teenage and adult years. The Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program is working hard to find better cures the first time. And working hard to find extremely targeted cures if the cancer returns.

The Kid That Started Kick For A Cure...

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!
