Dance For Saoirse!

Hi Everyone!

So sorry for the lack of updating. Winter has been a great time for the FCF. Our Giving Tuesday campaign raised over $12,000 for our Parent and Family Grant Program! We are so excited and thankful to everyone who made the event possible. We could not have done it without the amazing help of Ron and Kim Supino – and Supino’s Restaurant – who were amazing hosts!

We are excited to announce that our Spring fundraiser – Dance For Saoirse – registration is now open! This event will help the Fitzgerald Cancer Fund donate funds to a clinical trial for relapsed and refractory neuroblastoma. This trial uses T-cell technology to help kids fight neuroblastoma with their own immune systems. This less toxic therapy is showing some great promise, and wonderful results in patients who are left with no known curative options. We are excited to be working with Solving Kids Cancer on this amazing trial, and are hoping to make some great headway in it’s funding!

Join us on April 5, 2014 at the Artists for Humanity EpiCenter in South Boston, MA for 12 hours of dancing to support KIDS fighting cancer! Let’s help to make treatments less toxic and let kids be kids!
