Stop Children’s Cancer is a result of one brave child’s dream to one day find a cure for those with pediatric cancer.
After being diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 10, Bonnie Freeman told her parents her goal was to fight childhood cancer, to provide other children hope for the future.
Though Bonnie lost her battle with cancer, her parents, Howard and Laurel Freeman continued her bright vision and founded Stop Children’s Cancer, Inc.
The selfless dream of one child has resulted in almost $6 million in donations to help fund pediatric cancer research at the University of Florida’s College of Medicine.
For over 30 years, Stop Children’s Cancer has continued to raise funds for basic research, research scholars, and research equipment for the Divisions of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and Pediatric Neuro-Oncology at the University of Florida College of Medicine.
Inspired by Bonnie’s vision, Stop Children’s Cancer will continue on toward their goal in the prevention, control and cure of cancer in children.
