Join Team We Are Family 2013!!!
While we are on a hiatus from the bike ride, check back here regularly for
other important information about I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation.
Dear Family and Friends,
The I Care I Cure Foundation was founded by our sister and brother-in-law, Beth and Brad Besner (along with their friends and family) in honor of our nephew, Ian, who was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in January, 2006, one week before his 11th birthday. Ian was an extraordinary boy who shared his joy and love of life with everyone who met him. Sadly, Ian lost his battle with cancer just four months after his diagnosis suffering during that time the ravages of chemotherapies that were supposed to save his life.
The I Care I Cure Foundation supports the development of, and raises public awareness about, cutting-edge, targeted therapies for childhood cancer, so that the treatment of childhood cancer will be gentler and more tolerable. By educating the public about scientific breakthroughs in genetic childhood cancer research that are within reach but seriously underfunded, the foundation hopes to quickly raise money to fund research grants and provide seed money to researchers for new studies.
By sharing with you how close the medical community is to more humane treatment for childhood cancer, we hope that you will want to be part of the effort to fund this ground breaking research so that fewer and fewer children have to suffer as Ian did.
Our family will be participating in the 6th Annual I Care I Cure I Run 5K and Family Fun Day in Sunrise, Florida on Sunday, February 10, 2013which is just a few days after, what would have been, Ian's 18th birthday. If you will be in Florida at that time, please join our team to walk or run for this important cause. Just let us know that you are interested and we will email you all of the registration details! We would love to have you as part of Team We Are Family! If you can't join us for the race, please consider making a donation to this cause that is so very important to our family.
I Care I Cure I Cycle will, again, be a Silver Sponsor for the Run as a result of the incredible support we receive from all of you.
Our nephew, Ian, lost his battle with Leukemia in 2006. I Care I Cure was founded by his family to support research for gentler more humane treatment for childhood cancers. He is always in our hearts and thoughts! Click on Ian's photo to DONATE NOW! Thanks so much!
