Chris Barrett and Luke McCabe (of ChrisAndLuke.com fame)
conceived Teens 4 A Cure as a way to reach out and support
young people in crisis. Their immediate mission is to raise
$17 million dollars to directly benefit the National Children's
Leukemia Foundation (NCLF) to establish the first of many
recovery centers for young people and their families after
bone marrow transplants. Chris and Luke had the unique opportunity
to connect with notable members of the entertainment community
to enhance their fund raising efforts on behalf of NCLF.
Teens 4 a Cure is a group of young people, students and
celebrities, whose objective is to raise funds to build
Recovery Centers for children following lengthy hospitalized
cancer treatments. The Recovery Centers will be places of
joy and happiness. Places for these children to receive
love and support on their road to recovery. Places to share
new dreams and put their illness behind them. Places to
plan their future - Cancer Free!
National Children's Leukemia Foundation "NCLF"
is one of the leading non-profit organizations in the fight
against leukemia and cancer for children and adults. The
NCLF is established to support the unfortunate in various
programs. NCLF's main objective is to provide the cure for
children and adults, and to ease the family's burden during
their hospital stay.
In addition to introducing up and coming artisians to the
entertainment industry and general public, Karen Wood, Founder
and President of Backstage Creations, always ensures a charitable
concern is represented at the incomparable talent retreats
she creates. Teens 4 A Cure was an ideal match with the
Teen Choice Awards.
