Vs Cancer – Raising Money for Childhood Cancer

0 Comment

In 2006, as an eighteen-year-old freshman, Chase Hones was diagnosed with a Stage IV brain tumor. A horrific experience for anyone to go through, but he had a community supporting him. As a baseball plater for the University of South Carolina, his team rallied around him during treatment and helped raise funds for their local hospital. To this day Chase attests his status as cancer free due to the community help he received and the national research to cancer his community helped support.

Today, Chase is the founder of and helps run Vs Cancer, a fundraising campaign under the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

Chase was lucky having a loving community who rallied around him, as a survivor now he helps other children with cancer have the support community, doctors, and nurses they need through Child Life programs, while also producing significant contributions to the cancer research world.

As an organisation founded by a cancer survivor, the organization is dedicated to helping children in their fight with cancer every day, because they were founded by someone who knows what the struggle is like.

Vs Cancer is currently supporting a $3 million grant to four-institutes studying immunotherapy in the treatment of primary brain tumors and a life program for the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles that helps pediatric brain tumor patients cope with diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
