The sad reality of cancer is that it doesn’t discriminate. Everyday, about 43 children are diagnosed with cancer, and about 12% of children diagnosed do not survive*. Let’s beat those statistics and provide a better future for our future generations. For the month of October, VPIHS is proud to shine the spotlight on The Rypien Foundation. The Rypien Foundation provides hope for local families battling childhood cancer. Each year they provide funding to support a number of unique programs and projects that address the needs of children with cancer. Join us in the fight against childhood cancer, for more information we invite you to visit: rypienfoundation.org. Consider supporting their mission, and get involved!
