THANK YOU FROM FCCF!
Dear FCCF Friends & family,
THANK YOU!!!! On behalf of the Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation (FCCF) and all the families FCCF will be able to help as a result of your generosity and support at our 13th Annual Gala, please accept our sincere thanks and appreciation.
The Gala this year was a wonderful celebration in which 300 friends and family gathered together to honor amazing kids, families, and long-time champions in the fight against pediatric cancer. We cheered for Kyle and Steven – this year’s Howard Honigfeld Scholarship recipients, honored Patrise Danzi and Clint Valleau – long-time advocates for the cause, and celebrated Allie, Vincent, Rebecca, Liam, and all the kids who teach us about courage, strength, and resiliency in the face of pediatric cancer!
We also celebrated surpassing $1 million in direct financial assistance to kids and families since FCCF started! What a great accomplishment, and it is thanks to each and every one of you who have been part of FCCF through your volunteerism, participation, and generous support and contributions.
Your individual, family, and corporate donations and sponsorships have enabled us to reach another milestone, raising more funds at this year’s Gala than ever before, which will mean so much to the kids and families who need our support! Additionally, nearly 30 piggy banks from the FCCF Pigs in Action Program were adopted to be placed in the community to collect more funds throughout the year!
As you know, FCCF provides needs-based financial assistance to families struggling with pediatric cancer. The more we raise, the more we can help. Thank you for believing in FCCF, for spreading the word about the Foundation and the plight of these kids and families, and for showing your support at the Gala and throughout the year.
Together, we look forward to the next million dollars in support that each of us can be a part of!
With sincere gratitude,
Executive Director, FCCF

WHY IS SUPPORTING FCCF SO IMPORTANT?
Each year, around 13,500 children are diagnosed with cancer in the US.
Every day, approximately 250 kids around the world die from cancer.
Childhood cancer survivors are at risk for late effects of treatment, including: heart or lung problems, delayed growth and development, learning issues, compromised ability to have children as an adult, increased risk of other cancers later in life.
Your participation with FCCF allows FCCF to help more kids and families in need.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THESE KIDS & FAMILIES!
