CureFest is an annual event held in Washington, D.C., that aims to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. It is a gathering of individuals, families, advocates, organizations, and researchers who are dedicated to finding cures for childhood cancers.
CureFest provides a platform for families affected by childhood cancer to come together, share their stories, and advocate for increased awareness, research funding, and improved treatment options. The event features speakers, performances, informational booths, and activities for attendees of all ages.
The primary goals of CureFest are:
Awareness: By bringing together families, advocates, and organizations, CureFest raises public awareness about the impact of childhood cancer and the urgent need for more research and better treatments.
Advocacy: CureFest encourages attendees to engage in advocacy efforts by reaching out to lawmakers and policymakers, urging them to prioritize childhood cancer research and legislation that supports pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Funding: CureFest strives to generate financial support for childhood cancer research and related initiatives. Funds raised through the event are typically directed toward research programs, clinical trials, and support services for families affected by childhood cancer.
CureFest is not only a momentous gathering for the childhood cancer community but also a way to amplify their collective voice and a BrainStorm Summit – End Childhood Brain Cancerdvocate for change. It serves as a platform to share experiences, support one another, and push for advancements in childhood cancer research and treatment.
