everyone should have a chance to be a kid.

Standard

Solving Kids’ Cancer’s Junior Ambassadors are a group of 6-16 year olds whose philanthropic efforts help create new and more effective treatments for children with the most challenging childhood cancers. They deserve to be in the spotlight for their commitments and passions to bring change to the childhood cancer community. Throughout the month of April, we are proud to introduce you all to this inspirational group of future leaders.

Meet Jr. Ambassador, Finn Kennedy. (My niece, who never had the chance to meet her brother/my nephew, Hazen, who passed away from pediatric cancer before she was born.)

What do you want to do when you grow up?
” I want to be a lawyer because the world needs good lawyers.”

Why did you decide to become a Jr. Ambassador for Solving Kids’ Cancer?
“Because I feel like everyone should have a chance to be a kid, have fun and change the world and I want to help sick kids to have that.”

What do you want your efforts to do?
” I want this money to go to researchers who try to invent medicines using expensive technology.”

What do you think we can all do for children that are fighting cancer?
” We can encourage them to stay happy. We should work hard and do our best to let people know that there are children who really need help.”

Today, Scott Kennedy, Executive Director, Solving Kids’ Cancer, and Joe McDonough, Founder and President, The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, presented a check to Duke University Medical Center to bring oncolytic virus therapy to children battling high-grade brain tumors. The adult trial, leveraging the re-engineered polio virus, has shown very promising results and this new pediatric trial gives tangible #hope to children who are desperately seeking new treatment options.

You can make a difference to children with cancer. Your donations directly fund innovative new treatments for children battling cancer today.
