To raise awareness and fund research for pediatric cancer.
Taylor had a dream. She dreamed that ordinary people would make a difference through private efforts. She dreamed that someday no child would ever have to face cancer.
tay-bandz/kids curing canceris a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funding research for pediatric cancer. tay-bandz was founded by Taylor Matthews who, at age 11, was diagnosed with cancer. Taylor always believed that individuals could make a difference through private efforts. Her dearest hope that was that someday no child would ever have to face cancer.
tay-bandz/kids curing cancer is a "kids helping kids" organization driven by community based efforts. It is a purely volunteer organization with nominal overhead.
The Federal government provides minimal funding for children's cancer. Children don't vote, are not politically powerful and don't pay taxes. The kids need a champion. Please help.
1. There is almost no federal funding for pediatric cancer research and precious little private philanthropy.
2. More education is needed to inform parents and children of treatment options.
