The Inspiration for the Climb to Cure

Lendmark CEO Bobby Aiken has held a close bond with the Madren family for years. At age 13, Chip Madren was diagnosed with Stage IV brain cancer (Metastatic Anaplastic Medulloblastoma) and was given a slim chance of survival. With the help of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA), years of treatments, and the support of loved ones, Chip beat the odds and defeated his cancer! Inspired by Chip’s endurance and the small army of dedicated people and resources who helped, Bobby was motivated to find a way to give back.

Climb with us

Each year, more than 17,000 children and young adults are diagnosed with cancer—that’s about 46 per day. Though the 5-year-survival rate for childhood cancers has reached 80 percent, nearly 2,000 kids under age 19 die each year, making cancer the leading cause of death by disease in children. And that’s just in the United States. More than 300,000 kids and young adults are diagnosed worldwide. Less than 4% of Federal funding for research is allocated toward finding a cure for cancers that affect children. We need your help in the fight, and the money we raise together will fund lifesaving research and supporting families affected by childhood cancer.

Your donation will help us ensure that every child diagnosed with cancer has the best treatment option available.
