THMED is partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer research. Our goal is raise $8,000 this year to fund a full month of research.
Every year, an estimated 250,000 new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide. That’s about 700 new kids affected every day. And yet, childhood cancer is vastly and consistently underfunded. Less than 5% of the federal government’s total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers each year.
Kids with cancer don’t have time to wait. Your donation will go to research seeking lifesaving treatment. The money you give has the potential to make a huge difference for these kids and their families. Please join THMED in the fight to end childhood cancer!
We have three events coming up and we need YOUR HELP to make them great!
- Friday, June 10th (5PM-8PM) – Our ALSF committee will be holding a lemonade stand at Kendra Scott at The Plaza at Preston Center in Dallas, TX. Kendra Scott has graciously volunteered to donate 20% of all profits from 5PM – 8PM to fight childhood cancer. If you are unable to attend but would like to make a purchase anyway, you may contact May Usman via email at May.Usman@medestar.com on how you can purchase without being present.
- Friday , June 10th ALL DAY – Raising Cane’s located at 7955 N. MacArthur Blvd., Irving, TX will be donating 15% of the day’s profits to the THMED Fundraiser for any purchase made. PLEASE TAKE YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR FRIENDS to the MacArthur Raising Cane’s this FRIDAY and remember you MUST mention “Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.”
- Saturday, June 11th (11:30A-3PM) at Chip’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers located at 4530 Lovers Lane, Dallas, TX. We will be hosting a lemonade stand, collecting donations, and educating patrons of Alex’s story and the mission of ALSF!
