Help us remind Vice President Biden that children face cancer too!

Vice President Joe Biden

Vice President Joe Biden

Last night, in his final State of the Union address to Congress, President Barack Obama made a loud and clear call to the nation to come together to fight cancer in all its many forms. For Vice President Joseph Biden, who has been pushing for such a national initiative since the passing of his son, at the age of 46 from brain cancer last year, we are at a watershed moment in this long and difficult battle. Just as President Kennedy inspired our nation to send a man to the moon, Mr. Biden believes that now is the time for a new “moonshot” that will inspire today’s scientists to come together and push even harder to finally find a cure for this deadly disease.

At the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) and throughout the childhood cancer community, we could not be more excited or more supportive of Vice President Biden’s “moonshot” to cure cancer.  No one knows better than us, the parents of children who have faced this deadly disease, just how devastating cancer is to children and their families. And no one knows better than us the critical importance of federal funding for new and better childhood cancer treatments. Indeed, this year, 1 out of every 285 children under the age of 20 will be diagnosed with cancer, and of those, the majority will be treated with toxic drugs that were developed more than 25 years ago. Never has the need been greater to develop new therapies to treat America’s youngest cancer patients.

No one stands to benefit more from this new “moonshot” than cancer’s youngest, bravest victims.     

As the largest national and grassroots childhood cancer advocacy non-profit in the United States which after more than 45 years is still directed by childhood cancer parents and survivors of childhood cancer victims, the ACCO has a personal mission to fight this terrible disease.

In the words of ACCO’s Executive Director Ruth Hoffman:

As a father who lost his precious son to this disease, Vice President Biden knows the heartache that only a parent truly understands when they hear the words, “Your child has cancer.” Each year in America there are approximately 16,000 families who hear the words that their little children are diagnosed with this life-threatening disease and sadly one of every four of those children will die. ACCO looks forward to working alongside the White House on this essential cancer initiative, to continuing our work with Congress to pass the Childhood Cancer STAR Act (Survivorship, Treatment, Research and Access), and to reach for the day when no parent in this country has to look to the “moon” to say good-night to their child. 

 

Like Mr. Biden, we also understand the pain that comes from losing a child to cancer. And like Mr. Biden, we know all too well the critical importance of the need to devote national resources to fighting cancer in all its forms, including all forms of childhood cancer.

You can be a part of this new “moonshot” by reminding Mr. Biden that the children need his help too!

Mr. Biden has asked everyone, across the nation, to let him know our stories, to let him know why this initiative is important to us. He is certain to hear from thousands, even millions, of adults who have faced this dreaded disease. But it is our job to give voices to the tens of thousands of children who cannot speak for themselves. It is our job to tell the stories of the children who have bravely faced this disease and survived and to honor those children who did not. It is our job to tell the stories of the children who continue to face serious long-term risks to their health due to today’s toxic and outdated treatment protocols. It is our job to remind Mr. Biden that children get cancer too.

We encourage you to contact Mr. Biden directly, let your child’s voice be heard, and remind him just how critical this initiative, this “moonshot”, is to you and your family. 

Click HERE to send Mr. Biden a message about how cancer has changed your life and the life of your child forever. 

We hope that this loud and clear call will bring us closer to winning the fight against childhood cancer.

We hope that this national initiative will bring the breakthroughs needed to give every child battling this disease the successful treatment they need.

We hope that this critical movement means that someday, no parent will have to watch their child die from childhood cancer.

Because kids can’t fight cancer alone.®

We Are One” #Child4Child

A simple phrase that carries a powerful message.  A message to children around the world bravely fighting childhood cancer that they are not alone, that the world stands united with them to finally make childhood cancer an international healthcare priority!

It takes a special person to come up with such a powerful, yet simple message and make it accessible to everyone around the world.  Childhood Cancer International (CCI), the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO), and CCI’s other member organizations around the world feel so privileged that Mr. Christophe Beck, along with his daughter Sophie, have agreed to lend us their considerable musical talents to make “We Are One” a smashing success.

Composer Christophe Beck

Untitled-2Mr. Beck composed “We Are One” specifically for this international campaign to raise awareness about the threat childhood cancer poses to today’s children and families, while Sophie has already recorded her beautiful voice singing the chorus to show us how it’s done.  Moreover, Mr. Beck has agreed to compile all the many global voices singing the chorus, together with the voices of 14 childhood musical talents singing the verses, to create a spectacular recording for release on February 15th, International Childhood Cancer Day.  At the ACCO, we would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to Mr. Beck and his family for all his hard work making childhood cancer history!

Mr. Beck is an internationally-acclaimed composer best known for creating the soundtrack to Disney’s smash hit Frozen, but he has also composed soundtracks for other Hollywood blockbusters such as Percy Jackson and the Olympians: the Lightening Thief, the 2011 release of The Muppets, The Hangover movies, Ant Man, Edge of Tomorrow, and Crazy, Stupid, Love.  He has also scored numerous popular TV series, including the second season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, receiving the Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Composition for his score to the episode “Becoming, Part 1.”  A Canadian by birth, Mr. Beck and his family now reside in LA.  For more information on Mr. Beck and his many musical accomplishments, please visit his website at: http://christophebeck.com/.

Join the Chorus!

globe-logo-instagramDo you have a child who just can’t stop singing “Let It Go”?  Does your child dream of winning America’s Got Talent?  Here is your child’s chance to be a part of a world-famous Christophe Beck recording!  That’s right: your child can add his or her voice to the chorus of “We Are One” simply by recording themselves singing along to the chorus.  Whether you have a budding child star or are just looking for family fun for a good cause, we hope you will join us, add your voice to the growing chorus, and help us make childhood cancer history.

Child4Child is live now, so all you need to do is go to www.child4child.com and use the yellow button to record your child singing along to the chorus.  It’s that easy.  Recordings received by February 8 will be compiled together by Mr. Beck into a beautiful, amazing single—“We Are One”—for release on February 15th, International Childhood Cancer Day.

Childhood cancer is a devastating disease that strikes more than 250,000 children every year.  That’s more than 700 children who receive a cancer diagnosis every day!  Yet research into more effective and less toxic treatments geared specifically for the small bodies of cancer’s youngest victims continues to lag behind research into adult cancers and communicable diseases.  The goal of the Child4Child campaign is to remind the world that children around the world facing this disease and their families need our help now.  Adding your voice to the chorus is a great first step, but we hope you will do more and help us spread the word about this important awareness campaign.

We are one.

Child4Child Starts Today:
Add Your Voice to the Chorus

Today, January 11, the ACCO joins with Childhood Cancer International (CCI) to launch a fun, exciting, amazing new initiative that we believe will change the face…
or should we say, the voice…of childhood cancer forever!

That’s right: today, January 11, we are pleased to announce the commencement of Child4Child, a worldwide childhood cancer event that will bring the children of the world together in song in support of the hundreds of thousands of children around the world who are bravely battling this terrible disease.  And the best part: you and your family can be a part of it!

The goal of Child4Child is to create an amazing recording of a new song—“We Are One”—that uses the voices of children from around the world to produce a beautiful chorus of voices, to show children and families struggling with childhood cancer that the world stands with them, that they are not alone.  By raising their voices together in song, children will remind policymakers, scientists, industry, and indeed the world that the time has finally come to make childhood cancer an international child health priority.

“We Are One” is a very special song composed specifically for this spectacular event by Christophe Beck, best known as the composer of Disney’s Frozen soundtrack. The verses of the song have already been recorded by very special musical talents such as Livvy Stubenrauch, the voice of Anna in Disney’s Frozen, and other incredible voices from America’s Got Talent, The Voice Kids Australia, and Britain’s Got Talent.  On February 15, International Childhood Cancer Day (ICCD), the full version of the song will be released by Christophe Beck with these children singing the verses and the voices of children around the world singing the chorus together. It promises to be the greatest super-song ever in the history of childhood cancer!

We need your help to make this happen!

This important Child4Child initiative is the first international awareness campaign that aims to bring together childhood cancer advocacy groups, parents’ groups, and survivors’ groups from around the world together, working literally “in harmony” with each other to remind the world of the terrible toll this deadly disease takes on the world’s children. Despite amazing advances in treatments and survival rates for many adult cancers, treatment for childhood cancers lags far behind, continuing to rely on outdated medications that were not designed for the small, still developing bodies of children. More than 250,000 children are diagnosed every year with a form of childhood cancer, and unfortunately, more than 90,000 of these children won’t survive. The childhood cancer statistics are especially grim in the less developed world, where far too many children lack access to much-needed cancer treatments or even, in too many cases, basic medical care.

Child4Child is the initiative of Garbergs Advertising Agency, the Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation, and Childhood Cancer International (CCI), the largest patient-support organization for childhood cancer in the world with members composed of more than 180 grassroots and national parent organizations from more than 90 different countries. The American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) is the only US-based CCI member, meeting CCI’s high standards for membership: the majority of ACCO’s Board of Directors continue to be parents whose children have faced childhood cancer or who are childhood cancer survivors themselves.

Together, CCI and ACCO seek to represent the needs of children and adolescents with cancer, childhood cancer survivors, and their families. Working in partnership with international development organizations, policy makers, civil society organizations, health, research and medical professionals, CCI and the ACCO both strive to advocate for recognizing children’s rights and prioritizing childhood cancer as an integral part of the local, national, and global child health and development agenda. Child4Child is just one element of our on-going campaign to make the voices calling for an end to childhood cancer louder than ever before. We appreciate your help, support, and participation in this incredible international event!
