As our fundraising season moves full steam ahead with our Coffee for a Cure events scheduled at the end of March, we want to introduce you to some amazing companies that have decided to partner with us for the 2017 year as a Sustaining Sponsor.
The Isabella Santos Foundation and Levine Children’s Hospital has had a special partnership for years since Isabella was treated at LCH for neuroblastoma. However, 2017 brings our partnership with Levine Children’s Hospital to the next level as they sign up to be a sustaining sponsor and we collaborate to bring an innovative pediatric cancer treatment to Charlotte, MIBG Therapy. MIBG can be used to successfully treat neuroblastoma (with minimal side effects!), but a high-dose radioactive chemical that requires a special room for the patients to stay. Isabella received MIBG therapy in Philadelphia when she was filled with cancer and it destroyed it all.
We look forward to educating our supporters all year long about MIBG therapy. Our passions are strong and very much in line and together we will make a huge impact in Charlotte (and well beyond).
