BELIEF

Conviction and action are childhood cancer's worst nightmare.

CURE Childhood Cancer is honored to be supported by a large grassroots following of committed volunteers and advocates. Known as Believers, these committed individuals help drive our initiatives forward every day.

Continuing to bring the heat.

"When we saw how little was being done on the federal level and how devastating childhood cancer is, my wife Chris and I decided we had to help. Our support for CURE is 24/7, and we love every minute it."

Tom Glavine
Hall of Fame Atlanta Braves pitcher

You might be a hero.

Even our funniest Believer can get serious when it comes to defeating childhood cancer. Just listen to Jeff Foxworthy and see why CURE is so grateful for his involvement.

Literally at the children's side.

"You bet I'm a Believer. I have spent time with children receiving treatment for pediatric cancer and seen all the inspiration I need on their faces. Just like I can see the passion on the faces of everyone at CURE."

John Deushane
President & General Manager, WXIA-TV
CURE Advisory Council Member

Spare time proved to be the most valuable of all.

"Getting involved with CURE was the easiest and most rewarding decision I ever made."

"Tishanna was a 13-year-old cheerleader at her middle school. She was always full of joy and a blessing to everyone she met. On July 30, 2014, Tishanna was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and needed a Bone Marrow Transplant, but none of her immediate family were matches." There was still hope because they soon discovered her sister was a half-match. Read Tishanna
"Four weeks after her first chemo treatment, Rachel achieved remission. In the childhood leukemia world, that means no VISIBLE signs of leukemic cells under a microscope. It does not mean no more leukemia. You see leukemia cells are sneaky and like to hide, sometimes taking months or years to develop enough to be visible." ⠀

"I knew at this time something was definitely wrong. As we walked through the doors, my parents were there, nurses were running around getting a bed ready, and the doctors escorted us to a computer where they showed me and my husband what they had found. It was a mass pushing against Austin’s T-6 vertebra." ⠀
