What is COREfor
COREfor is an organization promoting positive change through people. We embrace the belief that ordinary people can impact the lives of others.
COREfor projects will always be dedicated to causes and community efforts that help people in need of care. We dedicate twenty-five percent (25%) of all proceeds from Of Things To Come to help find a cure for cancer and provide recreation for children who are undergoing cancer therapy.
A Cure for Cancer
Leukemia does not discriminate. It strikes both young and old. Cancer is the second highest cause of death in the United States. This year, more than 1,200,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed and more than 560,000 people, like Ryan, will lose their battle to this disease.
Twenty-Five percent (25%) of all COREfor proceeds from Of Things To Come will be donated to the Ryan Maguire Turner Endowment Fund at the Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital (LPCH) at Stanford University. Recognized nationally for their research, the staff at LPCH is focused on curing cancer for children. This hospital is a member of the Childrens Oncology Group, made up of more than 100 hospitals that share research, define cancer therapies and follow established protocols. Your support will benefit cancer research in a hospital near you that is affiliated with the Childrens Oncology Group.
The Ryan Maguire Turner Endowment Fund plays an important role in funding continuing pediatric cancer research. Your contribution will assist in finding a cure for cancer and make the difficult therapy for this disease more endurable for children. This ongoing Endowment is distributed into the following two areas of the hospital:
Seventy-Five Percent (75%) of the proceeds are designated specifically for ongoing research of leukemia through the Child Health Research Fund at LPCH.
Twenty-Five Percent (25%) of the proceeds are designated for the Recreation Therapy Department at LPCH. These funds will purchase computer software, games, and craft materials that provide children needed relief from treatments while in the hospital for extended periods of time. An example of this is the Starbright World program, which is an interactive computer network that connects numerous childrens hospitals across the United States, allowing sick children to talk, share, and play.
We sincerely thank you for supporting this cause to find a cure for cancer.
