Be The First and Win a T-Shirt!





Dear Family and Friends,

The I Care I Cure Foundation was founded by our, 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, 2013 which 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!   I Care I Cure I Cycle -Uncle Glenn's Ride is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of the 5K and Family Fun Day!   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.
