In honor and celebration of Robert Ballinger
I started this chapter here in beautiful Parker County Texas because Texas knows how to show up and support their locals. As some of you know my husband Robert was diagnosed with a pediatric brain cancer called DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) on September 24, 2018. It is commonly found in children between the ages of 4-9. The prognoses are not good. Children have a life expectance of 8 -12-month survival rate. By the grace of God Robert is still here. We both decided while he is here, we can be a voice to the many children that are fighting this awful disease. As you may know a 4-year-old can’t explain what symptoms they are having. But my Robert can. He can help be the voice for the children. That’s why we started a chapter to raise fund and find a cure. We can’t do it with out Texans support. So, will you help us be a voice for the children?
The Cure Starts Now (501c3 Federal Non-Profit) 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. Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both pediatric and adult.
