Fighting Childhood Cancer
Wisconsin Lions to raise $50,000
The new initiative for 2023-2024 is to raise $100 from each Lions Club in the State of Wisconsin for Childhood Cancer Support for families burdened with the task of supporting a child with cancer. Lions plan to help families with everyday expenses such as gas for trips to the hospital and motel bills for overnight stays plus other expenses a family might encounter.
Here's how to give.
Checks should be made out to: Wisconsin Lions with ‘Childhood Cancer’ in the memo.
So please help and give what you and your club can.
Mail your donations to: Wisconsin Lions, 3834 County Road A, Rosholt, WI 54473
We have done it before!
LCIF funded a $100,000 matching grant to help us purchase a Flow Cytometer which will be placed at Wisconsin Children's Hospital.
YES - We did it!
The Lions of Wisconsin were asked to raise the remaining $100,000 to make this a reality. As many clubs are searching for a way to impact childhood cancer, the timing couldn’t be better.
Since this began, we have added a second Flow Cytometer to the American Family Children's Hospital in Madison.
Here are three news stories from Madison TV stations celebrating the placement of the second unit in the state.
And in late 2020 we began working on a third grant for a unit in Marshfield.
