Celebration of life day
Today is a day to recognize those children who lost their battle and are currently fighting rare childhood cancers. Today, is our second annual Celebration of Life event at VE soccer club in Warminster, PA.
We began acquiring donations as early as December 2015. The generous Park Hopper passes granted to us by the Walt Disney Company set the tone for what an amazing event this will be. Thank you to all the companies, businesses and sports teams who kindly and generously donated to our event.

Events like this enable Shane’s Future Days to provide research funds to assist with purchasing of laboratory equipment, as well as funding pediatric preclinical cancer trials. It also helps us support the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Palliative Care Team who provide the world’s best care to patients with currently incurable childhood cancers. Additionally and most importantly, it permits us to expand our footprint, enabling us to provide for families affected by rare childhood cancers with support that they need along their journey.
So, today we celebrate and remember our amazing little man who taught us all to live life to the fullest. Shane, we miss you.
