Don’t miss our some of our executive staff David Etue, Vice President of Business Development; Bruce Duchene, Vice President of IDP West Sales; Paul Ardoin, Director of Technology Partner Marketing; and more as they volunteer their time and hair to this worthy cause.
Make sure to stop by our event or make a donation to help support this great cause!
By the facts:
- Worldwide, a child is diagnosed with childhood cancer every 3 minutes.
- By the time they’re 45, more than 95% of survivors will have a chronic health problem and 80% will have severe or life-threatening conditions.
- Childhood cancers are NOT like adult cancers. Many adult cancers can be diagnosed early. In 80% of kids, cancer has spread to other parts of a child’s body before it is diagnosed.
- BUT only 4% of federal funding is solely dedicated to childhood cancer research.
Join the fight and make a donation to support their efforts or join the team to shave your head and be a part of the fun!
