People Against Childhood Cancer (PAC2) is an advocacy group that does not raise money and has no agenda other than trying to unite all of the voices that are screaming out about childhood cancer. There are many different kinds of pediatric cancer and within each type there are varying groups and within each group there are countless foundations raising money and people working to advocate for their cause.

What PAC2 is trying to do is foster collaboration so that everyone can work together and be more effective. Check out their WEBSITE and join their FACEBOOK page if you'd like to help unite with one voice.

PLEASE go to PAC2 and read THIS in its entirety so you can get an idea of how powerful the rational use of facts can be and why ONE VOICE can help break down walls more effectively than trying to do so as individuals or in small groups. There is strength in numbers so I ask you to join the effort and to add your voice to PAC2.
It is VERY important to know where your money is going, so please take the time to look at the article. Here is the link one more time:

wow, this is good stuff. thanks for sharing!

we had a great experience with the light the night walk this year, but afterwards, we read about their administrative costs and also just wondered about all the "extras" at the walk and where they money came from (our donations that we had worked hard to gather in the name of childhood cancer research... hmmm...) it made us wonder. i appreciate seeing the numbers broken down. like other people commented on that website, they do good things like patient and community education, etc., but it is clear that childhood cancer research is not their #1 priority. i've obviously heard about curesearch and st. baldricks, etc, but didn't know that they were so far and above other organizations in their commitment to funding childhood cancer research. that is great! thanks again for sharing this link!
