We are thrilled to announce that The Morgan Adams Foundation is our charity partner for the month of March! That means for the entire month, every cat video you watch here on our site, or direct donation you make via our “donate meow” page, helps us raise money in support of their mission.
The Morgan Adams Foundation raises money and awareness on behalf of children affected with cancer. Working with leading physicians, they directly fund pediatric cancer research and therapies which will improve survival rates and reduce the devastating side-effects cancer treatments have on our children.
Morgan Adams was a normal, healthy 5-year old girl when she was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumor in December of 1997. She battled her cancer for 11 months before she succumbed to the disease. Two years after Morgan died, her parents Steven Adams and Joan Slaughter joined the Oncology Advisory Board at The Children’s Hospital in Denver as a way to learn more about research and treatment options for childhood cancer, and to take a more active role in addressing the unmet needs in the field of pediatric cancer research.
The Morgan Adams Foundation has grown to encompass many, many more families whose children have battled cancer. Some of those kids have won their fight and some have lost – but their stories are shared here. We hope you’ll read them.
