KIDS CANCEL CANCER EVENT BY TEEN ADVOCATES TO FUND PEDIATRIC CANCER RESEARCH BY THE SAMUEL WAXMAN CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION (SWCRF)

Kids Cancel Cancer is the latest fundraising event to benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF), an international organization committed to funding world-class cancer research around the world. Unlike, other fundraising events, this Event was created and is being organized by adolescents to specifically raise money for pediatric cancer research.

In addition to raising vital funds for groundbreaking research, Kids Cancel Cancer will be an entertaining day of arcades, miniature golf, great food, raffle prizes, and more. Parents are more than welcome to attend too.

This inaugural event will take place on August 17th, 2022 at the Clubhouse in East Hampton from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. Tickets are $100 for kids, $125 for parents (adults). For more information, or to buy tickets, donate – visit www.waxmancancer.org/kids-cancel-cancer

Meet the co-chairs:

Mischa Abend

“Cancer impacts so many families around the world. My main goal is to raise awareness and make a difference.”

Abey Fuks

“The event will be fun and entertaining. Attendees will be inspired by the work the Foundation does to make a difference in peoples’ lives.”

Ava Litman

“Cancer has affected my family in so many ways. I have seen many dark days stemming from this horrible disease. I hope to help eradicate cancer.”

Hayley Silvers

“I want my friends to know that research can lead to a cure, and we can end this awful illness.”

About Pediatric Cancer:

While pediatric cancer deaths have declined by 65 percent over the past few decades, cancer remains a leading cause of death for children and teenagers. In fact, it is estimated that 10,500 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed among children (birth to 14 years old) each year, and about 1,190 children will die from the disease. Additionally, a recent study published in Aging AND Cancer found that childhood cancer survivors experience serious health issues in adult life, much earlier than their counterparts who did not have cancer as a kid.

“It is also important to understand that while amazing advancements in treating cancer are saving lives, most treatments can have lasting negative impacts on the human body. This is why we must prioritize research that develops new therapeutics that are both effective, and also less toxic,” said Dr. Samuel Waxman, SWCRF CEO and Founder.

About the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation:

The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation is an international organization dedicated to curing and preventing cancer. The Foundation is a pioneer in cancer research and its mission is to eradicate cancer by funding cutting-edge research that identifies and corrects abnormal gene function that causes cancer and develops minimally toxic treatments for patients. Through the Foundation’s collaborative group of world-class scientists, the Institute Without Walls, investigators share information and tools to speed the pace of cancer research. Since its inception in 1976, the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation has awarded more than $100 million to support the work of more than 200 researchers across the globe.

Discovery Senior Living’s FlexChoiceSM Program Wins 2022 Argentum Best of the Best Award

The innovative pricing model allows resident seniors to select from a flexible menu of à la carte dining and lifestyle experiences each month, only paying for the options and services they choose to utilize.

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. – August 16, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Discovery Senior Living (“Discovery”) has received a 2022 Argentum Best of the Best Award for its FlexChoiceSM program, the company announced. Held annually by seniors housing industry association Argentum, the Best of the Best Awards recognize innovative new programs and services that are working to improve the future of senior living. 

Discovery’s FlexChoiceSM program debuted in October 2021 and was launched at select communities. The program’s provisions enable resident seniors to eliminate “bundled” or pre-packaged meal and service plans, instead choosing from dozens of available dining and lifestyle service options and paying only for those they opt to enjoy each month. 

Lifestyle customization programs like FlexChoiceSM are a focal point of Discovery’s resident-focused operating model—called Experiential LivingSM—which aims to empower more customized lifestyle experiences that will better satisfy the next generation of active seniors. 

Lifestyle personalization is the foundation upon which the future of our industry is now being built,” said Gottfried Ernst, Vice President of Operations for Discovery Senior Living. “But beyond just optimizing the resident experience, FlexChoiceSM and the latest technologies can help reveal resident preference and usage patterns, promote more operational efficiency, refine purchasing and reduce the number of wasted goods and services. That makes this a true, two-way innovation with the power to change senior living for the better.”  

James Balda, Argentum President and Chief Executive Officer said, “Congratulations to our 2022 Best of the Best Award Winners. Argentum members work daily to provide the level-best care and services for residents and these six communities are doing that and more with these ground-breaking new ideas on taking their caregiving efforts to the next level.” 

FlexChoiceSM is currently being rolled out at additional Discovery communities throughout 2022. Discovery Senior Living currently owns and operates a portfolio of 111 communities in 19 states.
