There is a 1/4 chance of someone with cancer surviving

Our Goal:

My goal is that people realize how lucky they are to be healthy and not have a life-controlling disease. This isn't something to joke about, and people suffer with this everyday of their lives. They are not privilaged to the life that we have.

T.M.S.'s goal is to raise $5,ooo.oo for childhood cancer. In our school from 6-8 grade we have roughly around 900 students. That means if just the students were responsible for this task, each student would need to bring in just about $5.50. I find it heart breaking that people won't even donate a cent.

7.6 million people die from cancer yearly

There are about 12.7 million people that aquire cancer every year

16,000 children (age of 0-19) are diagnosed with children every year
