McCATHERN PARTICIPATES IN THE ONE MISSION “BUZZ OFF” FOR KIDS WITH CANCER FOR 3RD YEAR IN A ROW
In the United States, cancer is the #1 disease-related cause of death of children; more than asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and pediatric AIDS combined. Each year in the U.S. around 12,500 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer; 20% of them will not survive.
The lives of patients, parents, and siblings are dramatically changed when a child is diagnosed with cancer. Children undergo long and painful treatments outside the comforts of home. For their families, the need for emotional and financial support becomes imperative as they spend months inside the hospital coping with the stress and concern of this terrible disease. All “Buzzees” will be raising money to fund vital programs and services that provide immediate relief from the relentless wrath cancer unleashes every single day.
McCathern has decided to participate for the third year in a row, and we definitely can’t do it alone. On Sunday, April 24, attorneys Andrew Garrett and Ramez Shamieh will make a BALD statement against pediatric cancer by participating in the One Mission Buzz Off for Kids with Cancer at Globe Life Park. McCathern will join hundreds of people who will shave their heads in honor and support of children with cancer. With a goal to raise at least $10,000, it would mean the world to us if you would consider helping our cause.
