Let's CURE Childhood Cancer
Good Morning to all of you. It’s that time of year where I’m asking for your help in making Lendmark Financial’s Climb to a Million another success. The 4th annual event is set for August 17th, 2019. The Climb’s first three years raised over $1.3 million and we are looking to add another $500,000 this year.
Here is the link to my page to donate, but please continue reading to see some updates since last year: << >>.
1) ALL (100%) of your dollars go to CURE Childhood Cancer. Lendmark and CURE handle all administrative and event costs.
2) Our consistency year after year allows CURE to make a solid commitment to the Precision Medicine Program, which involves individualizing treatments based upon genetic mapping.
3) Because of you, we are making a difference. Here’s an email I received last April from CURE’s executive director. The cooperation amongst doctors, researchers, and groups across the country is a testament to the sole mission of finding cures:

Subject: CURE funded research
Hi everyone. I wanted to share with you an email I received from one of our funded researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering. As you will see below, his research surrounding DIPG, one of THE most devastating forms of childhood brain cancers (incurable today with a median survival of less than a year!!!), has been published in a prestigious medical journal, with credit to CURE for our funding. I think this is particularly notable given that the work shows promise in developing a new treatment for this incurable brain cancer. That’s what the publication means – that the research is considered very significant. We have all known far too many children and families affected by this cruel and relentless disease. We shudder when we hear the diagnosis, knowing what it means.
THIS is exactly why we do what we do, day in, day out. When we say the research we fund is hope, we mean it – and this is proof. Think about that for a minute. Our constant nagging (I own it!) about sponsors for events, table sales, annual fund letters and calls is all for this. These are the faces that should motivate and inspire us to keep on…our kids, lost to this horrible disease. But soon, with our funding, there will be hope…:
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you - For choosing to be a part of this fight! (don’t forget to scroll down and click on the links)

I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to give you an update on the research on pediatric glioma from our lab which you supported. We recently published the work and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank CURE Childhood Cancer for supporting the work! A link to the paper and a commentary is listed below.
Many thanks, Richard
