Every three minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer; one in five children will not survive. Those who do survive often suffer long-term effects from treatment too harsh for their developing bodies. Kids are special, even when it comes to cancer treatment and the St. Baldrick's Foundation understands the need to treat them that way. Kids deserve the chance to be kids - fun-loving, carefree, refreshingly honest, and always a little goofy. Donations raised at events like this support the development of childhood cancer treatments that are as unique as every kid.
