Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I think this project would go best in the support section under Grant a Wish & Free Stuff

Feel Better Friends project

Feel Better Friends are handmade dolls stuffed with love and well wishes and then donated to children with cancer and other illnesses. These FBF dolls are meant to comfort the child through difficult situations and hopefully help them understand more about what they are going through. Each doll is specifically made for each child. We try to recreate the likeness of the child in his or her doll. To receive a Feel Better Friends doll please fill out the request form found here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1YseSg-hop35JgkUHpVV1mrG_ECJgYKL6ZymBCf9rlGw/viewform?usp=send_form This form gives me, or one of my volunteers, all the information and photos we need to make the child's custom doll. If you would like to know more about this project or want to see more FBF doll photos please visit www.facebook.com/myshanonigans or http://shanonigans.com/2014/06/15/question-and-answers/

Thanks!  20 years later, I feel more than ever how much we need to push for change and funding.  Our children deserve our best efforts, even after they are gone, but never forgotten...

I wouldn't know what college kids do... I am a 44 year old mother of two, the oldest is 16 and she will be a 12-year survivor of ALL in Jan 2013... I am going back to school. It wasn't meant to rip on the government...but to prove a point. I chose the topic because it was Childhood Cancer Awarness month, I was interested in knowing more about the funding or lack of it...if anything, I opened the eyes of my classmates, with the exception of one.I learned a lot and that is the most important thing. I am there to get an education and in the process I was able to spread awareness. Mission accomplished.

Thanks again,

I had to do a research paper for my COM/172 class and I chose to write about Childhood cancer research funding and I found the numbers on the NCI funding very interesting. I wanted to use them in my paper but they didn't match the numbers I found on the NCI funded research portfolio page, I have to cite my research material and I wanted to know where you got your numbers from. The ones you listed made a bigger statment than the ones I ended up using. I finished that class and recieved an A on my paper. I only had one classmate "attack" my paper, he said I was "ripping on the government." Anyway, I love what you do on PAC2. Thank you for responding to my message.

Thanks for the welcome message. I am just getting to know this website/forum. It seems to be a great resource! Elliot is doing ok, still in treatment.

Hey AJ's father,
Excuse my late reply ... have not been in here so often. It is almost 3 years ago Manda died and we are coming back ... :-) But the loss of a child is always painful and it's something you carry your whole life as a parent. We have received much support from family in LA and here in Stockholm.
What about you / your family?

Thank you! We want to raise awareness for Burkitt's Lymphoma and Leukemia in any way possible.  Hopefully we will be of some help to another family on this site and vice versa!

Thanks Bob. We really want to help over here at Route195.com and we're trying as hard as we can to get the word out to the community. Please let me know if there is anything i can do for you. Take care.

Thanks!  I was at the childhood cancer awareness advocacy day in DC in March with Curesearch - came home to tell a friend all about the experience who sent me to your website.  I look forward to learning more about Pac2!

Hello Bill,

i sent the following message through facebook. I guess you haven't had a chance to respond. Would you be available for a call early next week?

Beth Anne Baber November 20 at 8:43am
Would you be available for a call early this coming week? I want to share with you a project that I have on the table. It requires advocacy, research (scientfic literature), and a clinical editorial committee. The project is too big for TNCI to do it alone and we do not have the reach in the childhood cancer community that PAC2 does. The platform will be provided by a company in Northern California at a cost (I was told there is a donor interested in covering the majority of the initial cost). TNCI can handle the research end and a well known ped oncologist is interested in chairing the Editoral Board, as well as build out the the editorial committees. The patient advocacy piece is what is missing.
Cheers, Beth
