CURE Childhood Cancer is dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through funding targeted research while supporting patients and their families.
Through relationships developed over the last several years, both professionally and personally, I have had the great opportunity to meet some of the amazing people who have worked with CURE in reaching of goals in helping children survive cancer, while also helping families cope through what has to be an incredibly scary and emotional process for those personally affected. It was through these people and new friends that I have learned more and more about the great work CURE has been doing, in particular locally in the greater Atlanta area.
My wife and Ginny are blessed to have our healthy two year-old son Will, with a baby girl due in July later this year. My incredible family makes me appreciate how lucky we have been. In fFighting for CURE, I hope to raise awareness about the incredible work the organization has done and is continuing to achieve, and at the same time doing my small part to help out any way I can.

In 1975, when CURE was founded, a cancer diagnosis was essentially a death sentence for a child. Thanks to continued research, survival rates have improved from just 20% in 1975 to 80% today. That’s not good enough because 1 in 5 children diagnosed today do not survive. CURE is committed to funding innovative research that will ensure all children survive their diagnosis through less toxic treatments which will allow children a safe return to health. To accomplish this, CURE is investing $4 million annually at some of the top pediatric cancer research institutions – focusing on projects that will save lives, reduce side effects, and preserve lifetimes. Our highest priority is a precision medicine initiative, which brings individualized, gene-based treatment to children for whom traditional therapy fails. In the past 12 years CURE has funded over $25 million in research.
CURE also seeks to address the physical, emotional, and financial needs of patients and their families. Through our innovative programs, such as Open Arms Meals, Partners in Caring Counseling, Family Emergency Fund, and our Bereavement Care, we walk with families devastated by childhood cancer from diagnosis and for as long as we are needed.
