Use Your Power For Good
Cancer is a word everyone knows, and a word no one wants to hear. Certain cancers are common household names. Most people have heard of leukemia, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Neuroblastoma, on the other hand, is mysterious to many. Kate & John Welbourn founded Wade’s Army to honor Wade DeBruin and recruit others to use their power for good and bring the fight to this pediatric cancer.
Dr Brian Weiss joins John and Tex to shine light on pediatric cancer mechanisms, what exactly is neuroblastoma, and the treatment experience from both a child and parent’s perspective. Dr Weiss was Wade’s principal Oncologist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. In 2014/2015 Wade’s Army granted $25,000 to CCHMC to further fund the research supported by former NFL DL Devon Stills’ Jersey sales. It was one of the first grants we made and Dr Weiss helps connect your fundraising efforts to the use of funds to progress neuroblastoma research.
