In Memory of

Crusade Against Childhood Cancers

About Kamran:
Kamran was a very alive, very bright, 3 1/2 years old when all of a sudden he was robbed of a normal childhood. He was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma that he twice defeated with the greatest courage any human being can display. The third time his cancer came back with a vengeance. In the end his body gave in but his spirit won out.  He passed away three weeks shy of his eleventh birthday.

Goodbye dear Tipu, our little joy, in God's paradise you go play
What did you tell us? What did you say? Up in heavens, you're okay!

     Despite the fact that more children than ever are surviving childhood cancers, yet, cancer is still a serious disease. You are not alone in facing your fears; help is available. A treatment team - doctors, radiation therapists, rehabilitation specialists, dietitians, oncology nurses, and social workers, among others - can help you and your child deal with the disease. They will also help ensure that your child gets the best treatment available with as few ill effects as possible. Resources such as this website provide information and suggestions on how to make your child as comfortable and as pain-free as possible, and advice on how to make time for family and friends.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Spotlights Successes

     September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, but for researchers at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital it is a year round mission to research new ways to help more children live long, active lives while also working to better understand the challenges childhood cancer survivors face.

"Our goal is to push the cure rate for all childhood cancers to 90 percent in the next decade. Rapid advances in science and technology, especially at the genetic level, are going to make that possible," said Dr. William E. Evans, St. Jude director and chief executive officer. St. Jude is the nation's only cancer center focused solely on childhood cancer.     

We are greatly inspired by the tremendous dedication of Dr. Abdur R. Zafr (late), founder of Project CURE (Project C.U.R.E.) in Dayton, Ohio, to the cause of humanity.  His project has served the community since its organization in 1970.  I still cherish the memories of the times spent and conversations shared with him.  We greatly valued his advice and prayers during our son's illness.  This is with our most sincere thanks for repeatedly urging us to start a "Project Cure" for childhood cancers. My God Bless his soul.
