Avery is that little girl that punches above her weight and finds a way to stand out in the crowd. She’s a compassionate, energetic, athletic, mischievous little prankster who loves soccer, skiing, sailing and most of all loves getting a rise of “Averrrry!!??!?” out of her friends and family who love her.
Avery’s best days include morning snuggles (don’t worry there’s evening snuggles too), showing off something (it changes every day) at school with her friends, prank texting her cousins, hiding in the clothes hamper to surprise her unsuspecting mom and spending hours playing games and shooting soccer balls with her sister Lexi… And then, grabbing that evening snuggle with Mom & Dad before bed.
The Cure Starts Now has been there to support our family, and many others, while at the same time funding the fellowships and research to direct much needed intellectual talent and innovation towards finding a cure for the most challenging pediatric brain cancers.
1 in 285 children in the U.S. will develop cancer by age 20.
On average, 15,500 children are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Cancer is the #1 killer of children by disease in the United States, yet it remains one of the most underfunded diseases in the world.
The Cure Starts Now focuses on the Homerun Cure for all cancers by concentrating our research funding efforts on one of the deadliest forms of cancer, DIPG. With over $30 million in pediatric brain cancer research funding to date, you can rest assured that 100% of your donation will go directly to innovative research. Please join us in funding crucial research to save our youngest warriors.
