Raising “Dough” for Pediatric Cancer 2014

bake-sale-2014-feat-imgOur 3rd Annual Bake Sale was held on September 28th at Scotts Valley Market and Surf City Coffee Company in Aptos! Bakers and volunteers were busy days before baking yummy treats and packaging them up in pretty little packages to sell.  Friends and family came out to both Aptos and Scotts Valley locations to help set up, volunteer for the day, and flag down onlookers to contribute to the cause.   Cookie Monster was out again in Scotts Valley and Cupcake, who recently received a makeover, was a prop for all the kids to “try on”.  We incorporated a 50/50 raffle this year where winner Larisa Taylor donated her winnings back to the foundation!

On behalf of Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation, we want to thank you for your generous contribution to our 3nd Annual “Raising Dough for Pediatric Cancer”!  Your contribution helped us raise $6,234!  These precious dollars will be used to fund the Team G mission to fund research and development of treatments for pediatric cancers and support newly diagnosed families fighting childhood cancer with our Hope Tote program.  We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your enthusiasm and continued commitment to children fighting cancer.

Thank you for your generous contribution to this event and cause. Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer, and every day 7 children die. Pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the U.S. taking the lives of more children than asthma, AIDS, multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy combined.  A lack of funding into new and improved therapies contributes to this sobering statistic. Children are worth your investment, and we will make sure.  To find out more about Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation please visit: www.teamgfoundation.org.

Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting families fighting pediatric cancer and funding new and innovative treatments to ultimately cure childhood cancer.  After a year of battling 4 year old survivor Gabriella’s cancer, committed parents Kristin and Adam along side Claudia and Diego, the parents of angel Tianna, a 14 year old from the same town who battled the same cancer, Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation was launched as a nonprofit corporation supporting all types of pediatric cancer research at leading institutes nationwide and support families newly diagnosed with childhood cancer through our Hope Tote program.

When you’re a parent facing your child’s cancer, there is not much better than knowing there are so many caring and passionate individuals ready to support the families fighting pediatric cancer.  Knowing we will all continue this fight with our supporters behind us leaves us speechless.

With gratitude,

Kristin and Adam Cosner
