Every year when I see these cards, it really touches my heart because I know the proceeds go to such a great cause.
The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation recently announced the launch of its 2009 holiday card program featuring nearly 60 unique card designs created by young oncology patients. The colorful holiday cards, which directly benefit pediatric cancer research, are now available for purchase on the PCRF website (click on “2009 Holiday Cards”) and will also be available in many major supermarkets in Southern California starting in November.
Last year, the organization sold approximately 350,000 cards. This year, the goal is 500,000. Eighty percent of every dollar goes directly to research that leads to medically sound treatment protocols for childhood cancers. Since PCRF’s inception in 1982, the organization has raised over $22 million in funding for research.
