The Children’s Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CCF) is grateful to the generosity of Weis Markets, who continue to support their local communities. Weis Markets knows the power of giving back. Throughout the month of December, Weis has launched a campaign to support groundbreaking pediatric cancer research funded through CCF.
Weis’ generous support enables CCF to invest in critical pediatric cancer research, enhancing facilities, and fund vital programs to help find cures and ensure there are more and improved treatments for pediatric cancer patients. Annually in the US, nearly 16,000 children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer- and just 4% of the NIH budget is allocated for pediatric cancer research.
Through the end of the month, customers can help by donating $1, $3, $5, $10 at the register or rounding their order to the next whole dollar amount. Local news channel WMAR interviewed CCF President Tasha Museles and Weis Markets Community Relations Specialist Jaime Hynoski about this incredible fundraising opportunity.
Donations will quickly and directly be used to fund research at local hospitals like Johns Hopkins, Sinai, University of Maryland, Children’s National, Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and the National Cancer Institute, along with important partner programs with The Children’s Inn, Horizon Day Camp, the Claire Marie Foundation and many more. Advances in research will help children in Maryland, and ultimately througout the world.
CCF is grateful to the Weis Markets community for prioritizing such a critical investment in our youngest warriors. Meet some of these incredible patients.
