As we look ahead to another year of fundraising, we are reminded of how much we miss William.
Each year that goes by, we are flooded with “William would have” moments (William would have been driving, William would have gone to prom, William would have a job). It is a gentle reminder for us not to take any of life’s “would have” moments for granted. It is also the fuel that drives our fundraising efforts.
Because of generous donors like you we have raised over $200,000.00 for childhood cancer research at UNC Children’s Hospital. In our recent conversations with Dr. Ian Davis (William’s oncologist) we learned that he is another step closer to beginning a clinical trial for promising treatments he has been researching. As we begin our fundraising for 2019 we will not be taking any “would have” moments for granted. We WILL raise the money needed for Dr. Ian Davis to begin his clinic trial and we need your help!
UNC Children’s Hospital treats over 70,000 children in all 100 counties in North Carolina, many of whom are fighting cancer. Additionally, childhood cancer research receives only 4% of the overall federal budget for cancer research.
Please consider donating to The Wide Open Charitable Foundation and help us turn “would have” moments into reality! All of the money raised from this campaign will be donated.
We are a nonprofit in Raleigh that focuses on raising money for the research of Neuroblastoma and Childhood Cancers while offering support and hope to the families with children battling these diseases.
