Since 2008, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer has granted $16 million to childhood cancer research, funding 100 research grants, resulting in 41 new treatments now in clinical trial and available to children today. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a 501(c)3 non profit, was founded by parents Gretchen and Larry Witt, inspired by their son Liam's battle with cancer. They were shocked to learn that the main reason over 25% of kids diagnosed with cancer do not survive is because of a lack of effective therapies. And the reason for the lack of therapies was very simple: lack of funding. They pledged to support the development of new and better treatments by giving people a simple way to get involved. Right here in Charlotte, we have hundreds of families who continue to fight this battle every day.
