Connor passed away on the 6th of January. Connor was born on the 6th of July. In his honor and today being the 6th of September - Pediatric Cancer Awareness month, we are joining forces with the Max Cure Foundation to start a new fund with $100k for pediatric cancer research. More to come soon!
We have a major announcement to make that will further power the research and mission of the Max Cure Foundation. From Beth and Henry White, founders of Connor Cures:
"Today, we would like to announce the formation of a new fund to support pediatric cancer research. Connor Cures, in conjunction with the Max Cure Foundation, is forming the Connor Fund within the Max Cure Foundation. Today, we will be providing an initial investment of $100,000 into the Connor Fund. We are announcing this today to honor Connor Robert White as part of pediatric cancer awareness month, since he was both born and passed away on the 6th of the month. By the end of 2017, Connor Cures intends to cease operations and further fund the Connor Fund within Max Cure with any funds remaining. Connor Cures chose the Max Cure Foundation as their partner to fund pediatric cancer research and increase awareness because of the similarities of the two foundations missions. We look forward to working together and curing pediatric cancer!"
Executive director Jonathan Agin: "We are humbled and honored to be working together to establish the Connor Fund within the Max Cure Foundation. We have an ambitious research agenda and this announcement further supports the reach of our research funding. To be able to do it together with Beth and Henry to honor Connor is truly meaningful."
Stay tuned for further details and announcements.
