In the spirit of collaboration amongst childhood cancer charities - we've created the Sixth Annual PAC2 Holiday Shopping Guide. What better time than the Holiday Season to work together to benefit the kids? The list below highlights gift-giving opportunities from some great organizations - all benefiting childhood cancer.
We apologize in advance for those not listed (please contact us at info@
Did you know that "over 90% of researchers say that lack of funding for childhood cancer research is the main obstacle to saving our children's lives"?
Do you agree that "We can only hope that the national attention being brought to the NIH's funding of childhood cancer research will not only bring this issue into the public eye [during the govt shutdown], but keep it there."
Did you ever wonder "Why have I heard of no presidential candidate, and no religious potentate, publicly furious over the unnecessary death of an eight-year-old with ALL? Why is it not considered immoral to let these children die and do nothing to save their lives?"

Happy Thanksgiving PAC2!
You know how it works, the holidays always get here faster than we can imagine. To help ease the hassles of going to the mall and searching 8 trillion things on Amazon shopping for that perfect gift, PAC2 will prepare our 6th Annual Holiday Shopping Guide! The Guide is our annual list of ways to not only give great gifts from the comfort of your own home, but also support the fight against childhood cancer! Now THAT’S perfect! Each year we've searched for and compiled Holiday events, sales, fundraisers from our friends like Alex's Lemonade, St. Baldrick's, Cookies for Kids Cancer, B Positive, Rally, Jeff Gordon, Kids v Cancer, Pablove, Children's Cause, and the hundreds of other childhood cancer organizations we tell you about every day. We just pull them all together and share the shopping options with you to use and share. Here’s a link to last year’s PAC2 5th Annual Holiday Shopping Guide.
The Guide will be published on PAC2 and, like always, we'll depend on you to share it with your friends and family and get the word out. Not only does this increase awareness of childhood cancer, but it will increase funding to the research and family support organizations in the Guide.
This year, right now, WE ASK YOU TO HELP US prepare the Guide. When you see a Holiday event or sale or fundraiser posted from a childhood cancer organization, PLEASE send a link to email@example.com and tell us a little about it. We'll compile them all and publish the 2013 Guide before Thanksgiving.
Thank in advance to those who can help build the Guide. Together, we can cure childhood cancer!
This PAC2 article estimates the likelihood of four life-long outcomes for a child diagnosed with cancer. These are the projected results:
Every day 7 children die from childhood cancer within five years of being diagnosed AND every day 5 children that have survived 5-years from diagnosis die from the original cancer, a secondary cancer, or other long-term effects.
