PAC2 has always been a 'virtual' organization, and what you've accomplished has been virtually amazing! Having representatives from over 75 childhood cancer organizations
, gathering 43,000 supporters for the Petition to Raise Awareness and Funding for Childhood Cancer
, being the driving force behind The Big Picture
, collaborating in September 2009 with Stand Up To Cancer, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, St. Baldrick's, Rally and CureSearch to highlight childhood cancer in the SU2C magazine: COG update on Pediatric Cancer Research
, The Power of Imagination
, The Unthinkable
, and Rare
highlighting childhood cancer awareness month, and for having your question on childhood cancer funding be one of five health care related questions voted into the Citizens Briefing Book to President Obama
upon taking office, out of 44,000 questions and 1.4 million votes. Virtually amazing...
This September, continuing on the virtual theme, we've created the PAC2 2010 September National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Survey
. The Survey
is an on-line quiz that childhood cancer advocates like you can easily share with those outside the childhood cancer community. The goals are:
1 - Spread awareness of the realities and challenges in the childhood cancer world to those outside the childhood cancer world;
2 - Engage and encourage citizens to take action and donate to
support the most innocent and youngest amongst us, our children; and,
3 - Provide and collect information to expand and improve efforts to accomplish our mission - curing childhood cancer.
The short, 10-question survey includes questions such as “What’s the leading cause of death by disease for children under 20?” and “Who do you think of when you think of funding for childhood cancer research?” PAC2 encourages you to take the survey and then share and distribute the link to the survey (http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XQGLLQS
- E-mails to friends, family, teachers, scouts, coworkers, PTA, etc.
- Posting the link on web pages, blogs, Care Pages, Caring Bridge, or CareCircle sites
- Direct links to the PAC2 Home Page
- Printed versions are also available for download
The key is to get it outside of the childhood cancer community. Most of us know the answers to these horrible questions. Now we need to let the rest of the world know too; so that it's no longer 'rare', it's EXTINCT!
Thanks PAC2, for all you do!
