Kids Fight Cancer

Kids Fight Cancer

Kids Fight Cancer was founded in 1985 by Jim Pesoli, a four-time cancer survivor.  After ending 9 months of enduring a grueling treatment procedure of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, in addition to undergoing a bone marrow transplant, Pesoli, aged 30 at the time, was motivated by his two sons to fight for survival and recovery.  Pesoli could not imagine how painful and trying the cancer treatment process would have been if it were one of his sons in his position.  As a parent, he was terrified that someday, his sons, who could not comprehend the illness nor the treatment process, might have to endure the same treatment he once faced.
