Each year, the parents of more than 17,000 children age 0-19 in the U.S. will hear the words “your child has cancer.” Across all ages, ethnic groups, and socio-economics, this disease remains the number one cause of death by disease in children. In the last 40 years, the overall survival rate for childhood cancer has increased from 10% to over 85% today, but for many more rare childhood cancers, the survival rate remains much lower. Furthermore, the number of diagnosed cases annually has not declined in nearly 20 years. There are approximately 483,000 adult survivors of children’s cancer in the United States.

Jane Reise from St. Louis, Missouri is a lot of things – a retired educator who loves spending time with her grandchildren, a leader at her local community garden, and an avid hiker who enjoys the great outdoors. In fact, she’s a three-year veteran of the Tecumseh Trail Ultimate Hike. In her spare time, she practices yoga and even dabbles in a variety of crafty endeavors.It was her love of hiking and being crafty that inspired her to create a CHAIRity silent auction, which supports CureSearch’s efforts to find a cure for all children diagnosed with cancer.
Thank you for fighting to change the odds for kids with cancer.
