Holiday Heroes

Recently, a bell was donated by a local CURE family to the pediatric oncology unit.  When the final chemotherapy treatment has been administered, the child is invited to ring that bell. The sweet sound of hope rings for everyone to hear. The sound of survivorship is increasing. Increased survivorship comes with challenges, however. Educational assistance provided by an educational liaison or our BOOST tutors program has increased. Maintenance medications and additional doctor’s appointments arise. Families need support – both financially and through CURE offering fun programming that allows them to create happy memories together.

YOU can make a difference to our CURE families by honoring a hero in your life. The CURE Childhood Cancer Association Holiday Heroes Campaign gives you the opportunity to recognize a hero in your life all while helping local families coping with childhood cancer and chronic blood disorders.

All of messages and ads will be featured in the Messenger Post newspapers throughout Monroe, Wayne, Ontario and Yates Counties the week of Christmas. Ads and messages will also be available for viewing online on both CURE’S website as well as the Messenger Post website,, which will allow you to share your ad with friends and family from outside the area.
