ThinkCure!, the official charity of the Los Angeles Dodgers, funds cancer research that enables researchers at City of Hope and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to cooperate on the most promising research efforts to fight cancer. Without public support, however, they can’t work together on research that will change lives and eliminate cancer.
Today, nearly one hundred families in Los Angeles will learn that a loved one has cancer. We want one hundred marathon and half-marathon participants to help us show those families that we all care about them and to raise funds for collaborative cancer research done right here in Los Angeles. Or, join one of our forty teams to walk or run in the Big 5K to honor the nearly forty people every day in Los Angeles who die from cancer.
ThinkCure! is working together for cancer-free family reunions now with City of Hope and the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
According to Drs. Stuart Siegel and Stephen J, Forman, respectively from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and City of Hope, “The National Cancer Institute now funds less than 10% of worthy cancer research grants. Our institutions are eager to work together to eliminate cancer among adults and children, but we rely on support from ThinkCure! to help make this research happen”.
Please help us help scientists at these great local institutions undertake cooperative research which will otherwise go undone. Imagine a family reunion where cancer isn’t invited. As the official charity of the Los Angeles Dodgers, ThinkCure! believes that, just as Dodger baseball unites families and our community, so, too, can our fight against cancer right here in Los Angeles.
