Kids With Cancer in Northern Nevada Asking for Help

Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation announces a $300,000 gift match challenge. Now through January 31st all contributions to NNCCF’s Know the Gold Campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the William N. Pennington Foundation, up to $300,000. Donations to the Know the Gold Campaign help local children diagnosed with cancer. A donation to NNCCF could cover the cost of an emergency room visit or travel costs to receive care from a specialized doctor. Shirley Folkins-Roberts, executive director of NNCCF says each and every dollar donated assists children and families with the emotional shock and financial upheaval that they experience as a result of this disease.
