The 2nd annual Kids Cancel Cancer, benefiting the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF), took place at The Clubhouse in East Hampton. In addition to raising crucial funds for pediatric cancer research, the event was an entertaining evening of arcade games, miniature golf, close-up magic by Chuck Hayes, great food, a thrilling live and silent auction facilitated by Grandstand Sports and Memorabilia, and much more.
“Unlike, other fundraising events put on by SWCRF, this one is unique, since it was created and organized by kids,” said Marion Waxman, who is spearheading the event.This year’s event raised more than $90,000. Funds will support the work of two leading pediatric cancer investigators – one based at St. Jude’s Research Hospital and the other at Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Israel.”
While pediatric cancer deaths have declined by 65 percent over the past few decades, cancer remains a leading cause of death for children and teenagers. In fact, it is estimated that 10,500 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed among children (birth to 14 years old) each year, and about 1,190 children will die from the disease. Additionally, a recent study published in Aging AND Cancer found that childhood cancer survivors experience serious health issues in adult life, much earlier than their counterparts who did not have cancer as a kid.
“This is why prioritizing research to develop new treatments for childhood cancer is so urgent,” said Mrs. Waxman.
