At the Boston Park Plaza

Grand Ballroom

                                                                    September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!

Did you know a child is diagnosed with cancer every        3 minutes?

Every year, an estimated 263,000 kids under the age of 20 are diagnosed with cancer worldwide. That is 720 new kids affected every day! Yet less than 5% of the government’s total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers.

However, we are making progress! 5 year survival rates for those with childhood cancers is 84%, compared to 61% in 1975. Join Alex’s Team and the thousands of children and families facing this terrible disease in raising awareness for Childhood Cancer and continuing the fight for a cure. See how you can help by clicking here!

TripAdvisor Supports Alex’s Team!

To kick off our 2015 fundraising year, we are proud to announce that Trip Advisor, in partnership with Global Giving, has awarded Alex’s Team a grant in the amount of $60,000!

After the successes we witnessed in 2014, Alex’s Team Foundation is excited to announce that we are already on our way to reaching our 2015 fundraising goal, thanks to Trip Advisor. The grant funds, to be used over the 2015 fiscal year, will allow us to provide more fellowships to Harvard Medical School students and opportunities to Boston Children’s Hospital nurses, and ultimately help us take steps to expand our efforts to more hospitals and medical schools in our quest to cure childhood cancer. A special thanks goes to Caitlin McQuade, Alex’s cousin and Trip Advisor employee, who helped to make this happen. We are honored to be a grantee of Trip Advisor’s Global Giving Campaign.
