One of our Pediatric Dentists, Dr. Cariann, has been on the Board of Directors for the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation for over 4 years, with this year being her first year as Vice President. Over the past four years, Champagne Family Dentistry has been blessed with the opportunity to help children who have been diagnosed with cancer that are living throughout the Northern Nevada Community.
What is the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation?
The NNCCF is an organization that enhances the quality of life for children with cancer and their families. By providing financial assistance programs, advocating for increased research funds, and raising public awareness, the NNCCF does all that it can to give children hope, healing, and happiness. Since the NNCCF’s inception in 2009, it has helped over 300 families and provided over 1.8 million dollars in direct financial assistance. The Foundation helps nearly 40 families a year, some of which we have blessed to call our patients.
How can you help?
Champagne Family Dentistry will be participating in an event called ‘Workout for a Cure,’ which will take place at Mayberry Athletic Center on September 13th, 2014… We would like to have you on our team! What is Workout for a Cure? It is where multiple teams, each comprised of 6 people, will be competing in an athletic obstacle course…. Don’t worry, all fitness levels are welcome! There will also be a LuLuLemon Trunk Show starting at 7:45am (all proceeds for this will also be going to the NNCCF) for all that are interested! Past events have raised over $50,000, and we hope that you will join us in being a part of helping Northern Nevada families affected by cancer.
