My best to you and welcome to PAC2. We are a community of parents, friends, survivors, medical professionals, childhood cancer organizations (CureSearch, Alex's Lemonade Stand, St. Baldrick's, etc) and concerned citizens, all with the same Mission - eradicate Childhood Cancer.
We will grow, organize and plan, and take ACTION as “one voice united against childhood cancer." In the coming weeks we will announce short term campaign plans as well as plans for next National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2009.
The format is unique. You can have friends, post photos and videos, blog, participate in Forum discussions, start or join Groups focused your interest, chat live every Tuesday and Thursday with other members, learn or promote fundraisers.
While all those features are nice, it still takes ACTION. This is truly the reason PAC2 started. Each day or so, we feature updates and "stuff to do" on the home page. This is where you can help. You can get started with these ideas.
Our ongoing initiative is the Petition to Raise Awareness of Childhood Cancer. The Petition was started before Stand Up 2 Cancer, and now has nearly 18,000 signatures with the goal of being the driving force for a nationwide major media event bringing awareness to Childhood Cancer. To be childhood cancer's "Inconvenient Truth" moment.
I look forward to your contributions and ideas and working together in the future. Thanks again for being here; I am sorry you have to be............AJs Dad
