The Cure Starts Now Foundation

September 5th, 2014 by Amanda with no comments


The Cure Starts Now was started in 2007, in Cincinnati, by Wyoming (my home town) School’s teachers and parents  in honor and celebration of Elena Desserich, a six year old Wyoming student who lost her battle with a rare form of brain cancer known as DIPG. 




Today, The Cure Starts Now Foundation is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a “homerun” cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. In just 5 short years, The Cure Starts Now has raised over $1 million in research. 


The cure for cancer is just as important as it is elusive. We can cure cancer one-by-one or we can focus on THE cure which we believe will come from a cure for brainstem glioma. The fight begins today and the cure starts now.
