Support Pediatric Cancer Research

Carter's Story: Carter John Ankeny was first diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 2, 2015 at the age of 4. He fought hard and never gave up and was kicking ALL's butt. Unfortunately Leukemia can be tricky and on Wednesday July 5, 2017 his parents got the news they never wanted to hear, Carter had relapsed. The next couple of months were filled with new treatments and hospital stays. In true Carter style he endured it all with his courageous smile. On October 8, 2017 Carter passed away due to complications from a condition called Typhlitis. Our team is dedicated to helping close the gap in pediatric cancer research funding. Only 4% of funds from the NIH are designated for pediatric cancer research. The treatments given to our youngest leukemia warriors are often meant for fully grown adults; they're simply too harsh for our precious, developing children. Let's help fund better research so that children like Carter have the best chance for the best treatments....or even better, let's find a CURE once and for all.
