The Cure Starts Now Adds Missouri Chapter
Ellisville, MO | November 26, 2018 — International non-profit, The Cure Starts Now, announces its 39th chapter in Ellisville, MO in honor of Kaylee Allo.
The addition of this new chapter allows The Cure Starts Now to further its mission of finding the Homerun Cure™ for all cancers by funding research of one of the deadliest, most aggressive forms of cancer: DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) – a cancer that primarily affects children.
The Missouri Chapter of The Cure Starts Now was started by Karyn Lee in honor of Kaylee Allo and all children battling DIPG.
“There is not enough happening for these beautiful children that are suffering from DIPG. These children deserve a chance to put up a fight! They deserve a chance to live a long, memorable life. I am excited to start the Missouri Chapter of The Cure Starts Now on behalf of Kaylee Allo. Although I never got to meet Kaylee or her family, I followed her journey along with so many others, and my heart was broken when she passed. We are honored to begin this journey on her behalf – to share stories, build awareness, and spark change in these children’s lives.” – Karyn Lee
The Cure Starts Now believes, as the experts do, in the Homerun strategy – that in order to cure cancer, you have to focus on those forms that are immune to conventional treatments, those that affect children, and those that are the “biggest bullies.” To do this The Cure Starts Now funds research previously thought to be too ambitious or impossible.
By operating with less than 3% overhead, The Cure Starts Now is able to ensure that money donated through the fundraising efforts of its chapters goes directly to funding innovative research.
The Cure Starts Now is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to finding the Homerun Cure for cancer by focusing on one of the rarest, most aggressive forms of cancer. Believing in more than just awareness, The Cure Starts Now has funded over $12.5 million in cancer research, resulting in over 80 cutting edge research grants in 6 countries since 2007.
