Whipping Childhood Cancer

CTBTA President Emeritus Tracey Gamer-Fanning, CTBTA Director Jennifer Pace, and WFSB Cameraman Tom Zukowski all take a pie in the face as part of the "Whipping Childhood Cancer" campaign.  The effort seeks to raise awareness of childhood cancers and to raise money for charities, like the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance ("CTBTA"), whose funds benefit pediatric cancer patients.  Locally, the CTBTA supports Patient Assistance Funds and pediatric brain tumor research at Connecticut Children's Medical Center.  Tom, an active supporter of Whipping Childhood Cancer and of the CTBTA, challenged Tracey and Jen, filmed the event, and was nice enough to get a pie in the face in return!  Their efforts to meet the challenge were specially dedicated to the memory of Candice Castonguay, a dear friend of and advocate for the CTBTA.


Divide and Multiply...

The CTBTA takes a pie in the face for Childrens Cancer with our friends from the Saint Francis Foundation and Divide and Multiply their message that no one is alone with the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance!
