September 2010 has come and gone. A review, some a repeat, but with links to send thanks to the companies, groups and people who made things happen. Please let them know they make a difference.  Congratulations & thank you to everyone involved in whatever way; the combined and united efforts of this community can and will change the world.

Immediately, the Hyundai Hope on Wheels campaign kicked into high gear:

  • The largest national fundraising and awareness initiative to fight childhood cancer ever run by a major corporation.
  • A nationwide, month long TV campaign on all major networks highlighting September that HAS to be
    the most viewed childhood cancer awareness campaign in history.
  • Over $23 mil in funding in just 12 years, with sixty-eight $100k grants for childhood cancer in 2010 alone.
  • Hyundai Hope on Wheels truly is: Hope for the childhood cancer community.

1500 docs from the Children’s Oncology Group met in Dallas, collaborating on how to help our kids. It's the 10th anniversary of COG. Thanks to CureSearch and all the COG docs! And give special thanks here to the event sponsor – the St. Baldrick’s Foundation!!


The gang at Alex’s Lemonade Stand teamed with Strawberry Shortcake to bring both corporate funding and national awareness to the fight. Let’s all say thanks to Strawberry Shortcake! Other great ALSF supporters to thank include: Mike and Ike’s, Applebees and Walgreens.

President Obama proclaimed Sept. as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Check. Now, again, how about that funding for the Caroline Pryce Walker Conquer Childhood Cancer Act?


Great exposure from FOX Sports who teamed with St. Jude for the 2010 NFL season. Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw said: "I played a long time in the NFL, with a lot of tough and courageous individuals, but nobody can match the courage and determination of these wonderful children”. Yep. Thank FOX here.

PAC2's Sept. 2010 Initiative - The Childhood Cancer Survey has some interesting results. Thanks for your support, and special thanks to the Survey sponsor: St. Baldrick’s!


Check Working Mother mag's special section: September is…A Cancer Story. From Eugenie Kleinerman M.D. on the State of Pedantic Cancer Funding to contributions from TX Childrens, Liz Scott of Alex's Lemonade Stands,  the Honorable Deborah Pryce, Bear Necessities, CHOP, and PAC2 member Rebecca Wright! Say thanks to Helen:

CureSearch held 4 Walks in Sept. raising nearly $200k! Six more Walks in Oct to raise $$ for the Children's Oncology Group whose 230 hospitals and 5000 docs treat 90% of cancer kids. More about Walks here.

Throughout Sept. (thru Dec.), Glad to Give matches all funds raised for Cookies for Kids' Cancer™ -- up to $200k! I’m glad and if you are too, thank Glad here.


The 46 mommas shave for the brave appeared on-stage at the live broadcast of Stand Up To Cancer and have raised $180k so far!   Here's a great video.  Are you ready to be a bald momma in 2011? Just click here.

Stand Up To Cancer gave a shout out to St. Baldricks on the ticker as the moms stood on stage.  Amazingly altruistic for a competing charity. The childhood cancer links and the Childhood Cancer Awareness blog further highlighted Sept. & kids cancer. Thank SU2C and continue this blossoming relationship between the kid’s cancer community and SU2C here.

The Aflac Cancer Center got $2 mil from the Aflac Duck- Thank the Duck -

As I stated before on facebook a big thanks to all who put this together as a new mom with a new diagnosis. This sight came in great handy! I am from PA and would love to know what can I do. Please if anyone has time to contact me. I so much would appreciate it!
Hi Jennifer,

thanks for joining PAC2, and we hope to have a new initiative up later this week. Please browse around, maybe see if your rep is a member of the Ped Cancer Caucus - if not, encourage him/her to join!
