Kristin Conner: CURE Childhood Cancer
April 24, 2009
This years Druid Hills Golf Club Charity Weekend with Play for Patrick and Tennis Pro AM will be held on Friday, May 29-30 to benefit Press On: The Patrick R. Chance Fund for Neuroblastoma Research through CURE Childhood Cancer.
Press On provides funding for basic and clinical research relating to neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer of the sympathetic nervous system. Press On was established in June of 2007 through CURE Childhood Cancer, Georgia’s oldest childhood cancer charity.
Through various fundraisers, Press On provides grants to scientists and physicians conducting research involving neuroblastoma. During the distribution of grants, a preference will be given to researchers and physicians at the Aflac Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Service at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, although consideration will be given to requests for funding by any scientists or physicians conducting research into novel therapies for neuroblastoma, regardless of their affiliated institution.
Patrick Chance is the six year-old son of Erin and Stephen Chance. Patrick lives in Atlanta with his sisters, Madison and Anna, and his dogs, Banks and Bear. In June of 2006, Patrick was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer. It took surgery, ten cylces of toxic chemotherapy, twelve rounds of radiation, and one cycle of monoclonal antibody therapy to rid Patrick of this terrible disease. The last cycle of chemotherapy was so strong that he required autologous stem cell rescue to survive. He continues to recevie painful antibody therapy in hopes of keeping him in remission. He is still at high risk for relapse and at risk for secondary cancers like leukemia as well as infertility, scoliosis, and other significant side effects. Simply put, the current treatments for neuroblastoma are not good enough. With your help, we plan to change that.
