ALL CANCERS, ALL COLORS, ALL ARTS
Inspired by Play4TheCure, Arts4TheCure is the official fine arts and performing arts fundraising platform of the National Foundation for Cancer Research, It’s not just about one color ribbon, we’re for ALL CANCERS, ALL COLORS, ALL ARTS.
“In the era of precision medicine, doctors want to use genetics to select the most effective drugs for each individual patient. It’s time to move beyond individual cancer types – different colored ribbons. By way of precision medicine, we will find cures for all types of cancer. By supporting NFCR’s scientists in their invaluable research endeavors, you are helping pave the way to do exactly that: cure cancer.
We have all been affected by cancer in some way or other or know those who have been. Make a decision to support them. Make a decision to help NFCR pave the way to finding a cure. Together, performing for ALL CANCERS, ALL COLORS and through ALL ARTS, we will make a difference.”
Pete and Sherri Kimbell: Shining a Light on Cancer Research
Pete and Sherri Kimbell have a holiday tradition in Indian Trail, NC that lights up their community while raising money for NFCR. Their story begins in 2012, when Pete’s mother, Joan, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Learn more about the Kimbells.
Peter is the co-founder and the current president of a student organization called Youth Art Bridge, which uses art to raise awareness for causes. When learning about NFCR and its work, he assembled a group of students and volunteers to create and auction off original pieces of artwork to support cancer research. If you would like to learn more about the Youth Art Bridge program or support their efforts, please visit their online fundraising page.
