Tom Dunbar shared his story about his deceased son, Evan. Evan was diagnosed at 4 and passed away at 6, from Neuroblastoma. After Evan's passing Tom and his wife Lynn (now divorced) set up a research focused foundation that was a part of raising the cure rates for Neuroblastoma from about 40% to nearly 60%. He says they're lucky to have Kosair Children's support along with CureSearch funding the work of the COG, to continue those improvements.

Pam Rankin-Powell brought her granddaughter Joelle Herndon who is a 8 year old sarcoma patient.

The CureSearch Walk celebrates and honors children whose lives have been affected by childhood cancer, while raising funds for lifesaving research. You can help us by encouraging your friends, family, co-workers and community to champion our cause.
