Cartridges For Cancer: "Providing the Care....Finding the Cure"

Optimist International and the St. Paul Optimist Club support OI efforts for Childhood Cancer Campaign -- "Providing the Care ... Finding the Cure"

Did you know that each year more than 12,000 children and teenagers will be diagnosed with cancer? Did you also know that one in every 330 Americans develops cancer before the age of 20? Due to statistics such as these, Optimist Clubs are encouraged to participate in this program by building awareness of the disease, providing assistance to childhood cancer patients and their families and supporting research to find a cure.
