Default April 2013 Mission-CARDS FOR A CAUSE

2013 Cards for A Cause
APRIL MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!


ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:
St. Baldricks Foundation

Description of Organization: Since its inception in 2000, St. Baldrick’s has raised approximately $150 million for the cause. Worldwide, 160,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year and despite tremendous progress, cancer remains the number one disease killer of children in the U.S. and Canada.

If you have been touched by a child with cancer you know the urgency for finding a cure. As childhood cancer research is severely underfunded it is essential that we take a stand for these young lives.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation awards more grants for childhood cancer research than any organization in the world, except the U.S. government. Expert researchers receive funds to search for new cures and less toxic treatments. Young researchers receive funds that will enable them to flourish into the leading experts of tomorrow. Experts at more than 200 institutions where kids are treated for cancer receive funds from a multi-million dollar cooperative research grant. This will help give kids everywhere the best hope for a cure and long, healthy lives.Here is a link to our website: www.stbaldricks.org
