CancerFree KIDS strives to provide research funding through a variety of events, one being TOSS. The organization was founded after the daughter of Sam and Ellen Flannery was diagnosed with cancer as an infant. CancerFree KIDS continues to grow, raising more and more revenue for pediatric cancer research. Since the creation of the organization, 124 research projects have been funded by CancerFree KIDS. These projects come to about $4.4 million in total.
There are a variety of ways to get involved with CancerFree KIDS, which can be found on their website. Visit https://cancerfreekids.org/howyoucanhelp/ to learn more about CancerFree KIDS and other ways to support the cause.
