Help Support CBTF and 23rd Annual Big Apple Circus

Everyday nine families across America learn their child has a brain or spinal cord tumor, but only six will transition to survivorship. Pediatric brain and spinal cord tumors remain the toughest children’s disease. These kids often endure not only intense surgical procedures but also extensive chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Not only does this disease often confine children and parents to long hospitals stays, it also greatly impacts the life of their entire family.

This year, for the 23rd time, the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation has reserved the Big Apple Circus on Sunday, October 23rd so the children and families we serve- and you- can join us for a fun and laughter-filled afternoon. Please join us in making this CBTF day at the circus, the 23rd Annual, unforgettable! We need your help in reaching our goal of raising $150,000 to recognize this important milestone.

A day at the Big Apple Circus offers a welcome reprieve for children and families. It’s an opportunity for them to enjoy a day of cheerful fun and entertainment with other kids and families dealing with the same disease and its after-affects. What’s more wonderful than a child wide-eyed at the sight of clowns and circus animals in the center ring?

Your sponsorship of a child or a whole family will make this day a memorable one for hundreds of children and families. Proceeds will also support other quality-of-life programs we provide for children and families including education and research.

I want you and your family to join the fun! The enclosed order form, which you can send back to me, allows you to sponsor a child or family and order your tickets, too. You can even do it all online at www.akivazablocki.com. All donations large and small go a very long way.

Thanks for your continuing support and for your help on this special day!
Sincerely,
Akiva (iPatchMan) & the Young Professionals Group (YPG) of Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation

My favorite quote at the 2009 CBTF Gala was by CSI: NY Star Melina Kanakaredes who said: "Someone says to you Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation," you say "yes, what can I do!?"

A Personal Survivor Story:
It is hard to believe that it has been 6.5 years since the day I was diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor at age 25. And 6 years after I leaped off the cliff and had brain surgery, I still struggle daily with the after-effects. Nevertheless, I remain hopeful and resolute in my decision to survive and live a long and happy life. Over the course of these years, I have found great fulfillment with my involvement with the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation (CBTF), of which I have the honor of serving on its board. As chair of the Young Professionals Group (YPG), I have started this fundraising page with a goal of $5000. If you can, please help send a brain tumor survivor to the Big Apple Circus by donating to CBTF:
In overcoming a dire brain tumor prognosis, I came out stronger and deeply committed to help others who need it most.

Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to our fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support-- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
