|Where are Dallas' most influential women? They are in the Guild! Join today. |
Wipe Out Kids' Cancer (WOKC) has been actively working for nearly 30 years with the vision of a day in which all children are living...cancer free.
Based in Dallas, we are a non-profit organization dedicated to our mission to invest in the lives of children by funding cancer research, by healing the sould through fun experiences and by advocating for acancer-free tomorrow.
We have invested over $3 million dollars to fund research in innovative treatment options for childhood cancers as well as programs to enrich the lives of children affected by cancer, and their families.
Our support of these children and their families includes providing fun and free programs to allow them to forget about their chemo and hospital stays and just be kids; funding the cost of a full-time Spanish-English translator who works with families and doctors to assure that key knowledge and information about their child's cancer and treatment is understood by those for whom English is a second language; we fund and organize the "Buddy Bags" that contain necessities for lengthy hospital stays that are distributed to every child admitted to Children's Medical Center - Dallas for cancer treatment.
We hope you'll be inspired to join our cause. If you would like to find out more about volunteering for Wipe Out Kids' Cancer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2010, Wipe Out Kids' Cancer celebrates 30 years of fighting for children with cancer. In honor of this milestone, Honorary Chairs The Craig Leslie family and Event Chair Mary Poss will host an evening at The Adolphus Hotel on November 5th. The evening will begin with the Jersey Mike's VIP Cocktail Pary followed by dinner, dancing, auction, and the presentation of the Norman Brinker Humanitarian Award. An evening not to be missed!
