Did you know that kids and dogs develop several cancers in common including bone cancer, brain cancer, lymphoma, and leukemia?
16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year – with only 3 new kids cancer drugs in 20 years, there is little money behind new drugs- only 4% of NIH’s budget goes to pediatric oncology.
Some 4,000,000 dogs in the US are diagnosed with cancer; 50% of all dogs over the age of 10 die from their disease, and treatment options are limited for man’s best friend.

Canines-N-Kids has made a unique practice of partnering the two. Treating and researching cancer in dogs can help us to treat children with the same cancers, furthering the effort in the fight against cancer, and developing better treatment options.

The organization will be using wristbands as a giveaway for their “Paws for a Cure Summit” which will be held June 12th in Washington, DC, as well as for their first annual “Two by Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer” on October 1st, in Brambleton, VA. They eventually hope to offer them for purchase on their website. The bands feature their unique design and logo and will help share their message and raise awareness.

Reminderband is happy to feature this awesome organization and their cause.

Abri was just eight years old when she was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, on September 4, 2015. After a year of brutal treatment and limb salvage surgery, she is now six months in remission.

 

The folks behind supporting Abri, her Team Abri facebook page, and others affected by childhood cancer have designed their very own wristband to spread Abri’s message. This band shares the prayer that she prays every night:

We love Abri’s message and we wish her and all others facing the devastation of childhood cancer the best of luck!

To learn more about Abri’s story and about others who are battling cancer, head over to their facebook page, here. If you have your own cancer support organization, page, or group, take a look at our resources for all the cancer types and wristbands to find the perfect bracelet or keychain for your cause.
