May is Cancer Research Month

Did you know that May is Cancer Research Month? During this month we recognize the people who work all day and everyday trying to find a cure for cancer. We are also supporting the people helping those with cancer-- just like you when you donate to my Stronger Than Cancer Fundraiser! Cancer was the second most common cause of death in the United States in 2017. Although, because of all of the research being done, about 15 million people are survivors of this terrible disease!

May is very important to my platform because it shows people how important cancer research and supporting cancer patients is. For my Stronger Than Cancer Fundraiser, which started earlier in May, we have already raised more than $3,000. My original goal was to raise $1,000. The money raised for my fundraiser will be used to lift the spirits of cancer patients by providing entertainers who can visit them in hospitals here in Connecticut. Extra proceeds will go towards cancer research! Thanks to the individual donors and schools who participated in our Hat Day Fundraiser, we will be able to help bring laughter and smiles to children with cancer at Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford and Smilow Cancer Hospital in New Haven.

I believe that we will be able to help those working to find a cure for cancer! What are some ways you can show support to those finding a cure for cancer?
