Love, Chloe helps fund research through the DIPG Collaborative. The collaborative is a group of several foundations across the U.S. that come together to fund multiple grants for
ground-breaking research each year.
By combining our resources, we are able to contribute more significantly in the continued search for the "home-run" cure.
*Fueling the Fight Gas Cards Should be Available in January 2022.
Fueling the Fight, to be funded through our Distinctive License Plate, will be a community outreach program that assists families of children diagnosed with cancer.
Children diagnosed with cancer who live in Kansas cannot be treated in Salina. A small percentage of childhood cancer patients can travel to Wichita to seek treatment, however a majority of these children and their families must travel to Kansas City, MO for treatment and to receive follow up care. In a few cases, families travel outside of the state to receive care.
Fueling the Fight will be funded through our Distinctive License Plate campaign. It was our hope that the license plates would be available in January 2021, but COVID-19 has delayed the approval of our license plate until the 2021 Legislative Session.
Funding from the license plate will supply funding to "Fueling the Fight", an upcoming program that will provide gas cards to families who have a child in treatment or who are returning to Kansas hospitals for follow up visits.
After providing testimony to both the Kansas House and
Senate Transportation Committees this spring and a quick passage of the bill in the House, COVID-19 hit and everything came to
a halt due to the stay at home order.
On May 7th, the Legislators opted to return to the Statehouse only to finalize the State budget. This means our distinctive license
plate will have to be reviewed again next year. The funding
we were hopeful would be available in January 2021
will be postponed to January 2022.
