September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we would like to share SRF's speech that was given at this year's golf fundraising event. This is our tribute to the families affected by childhood cancer and our thank you to our generous donors and supporters... 

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "There is power in unity and there is power in numbers". Every August, we join together to rally for the same cause - childhood cancer. 

It's a beast that tears through a child's physica l and mental health as well as a family's wallet. The effects are brutal and still felt years beyond treatment. 

Our day of golf, fun, and relaxation is also a day to reflect on why we open our hearts (and our wallets) to these children. We unify to make the lives of children affected by cancer better. There is power in OUR unity and power in OUR numbers. 

Here's brief a look back at Spencer Reid Foundation's numbers since we started this foundation in 2011. 

1- One boy, who inspired one idea, that grew one foundation.

3 – Three activity centers purchased for the Cancer Center for Kids for the children to use during chemotherapy treatments. 

5 –Five trips to Hershey Park raffled off to families affected by pediatric cancer.

8 – Eight private carnivals and festivals, allowing children with cancer to socialize with their peers in a safe and healthy environment.

16 – Sixteen seasonal giveaways that boost family morale.

22 –Twenty-two families received financial assistance to help pay their mounting bills.

55 – Fifty-five play groups of Spencer’s Circle.

300 - $300,000 raised to date by generous people like all of you!

Infinity– An infinite number of smiles have been put on the faces of children with cancer and their families.

While there is power in our numbers, don't forget the power of one. 

One brave boy named Spencer inspired this all. He unified us in one cause under one foundation. One individual has the power to make a difference in the lives of hundreds. By joining in our cause today you possess the power to change lives too. You are one but we are unified. 

Thank you for your support and never forget the impact that you have made on the lives of children with cancer.
