Fighting Kids Cancer

With Darius Rucker at Elmwood Park

We have taken on the very ambitious goal of attempting to raise funds for the building and resourcing of a new state-of-the-art pediatric cancer treatment center in an unprecedented partnership with Carilion Clinic. The new pediatric unit will be part of the new Carilion Cancer Center on the Riverside campus. All money donated to the Life Ring Foundation and our Fighting Kids’ Cancer campaign will not be comingled with any other projects. Every dollar will go exclusively to resources needed for pediatrics. All too often, families who are diagnosed with pediatric cancer either have to leave their homes and families to get the resources they need or take their chances without those resources. The outcomes are being affected, and we are losing children who could have made it if they did not have to play from behind. This is a charitable opportunity like no other. Every dollar you give will increase the odds that the next child diagnosed will make it the bright future he or she is destined for.

“Our daughter Charlotte was diagnosed with cancer in 2018. We have been profoundly impacted by pediatric cancer. In our five-year journey we have seen too many families lose their fight simply due to lack of resources in our area. We are dedicating ourselves and our resources to changing the outcomes for the kids of the Roanoke Valley who will be fighting for their lives. Join us in this fight.” –  Jess and Kelly Woolwine
