This year more than 13,000 children will be diagnosed with cancer. That’s 13,000 children, families, and loved ones who will begin a battle they never imagined they would fight. In 2007 Larry & Gretchen Witt were one of those families. After their son, Liam, was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 2, they started the biggest fight of their lives. They are now the President and Vice President of a non-profit organization they founded, Cookies for Kids Cancer.
When 2-year-old Liam Witt was diagnosed with childhood cancer in 2007, his parents Larry and Gretchen were shocked to learn of the lack of effective treatments for pediatric cancers due to lack of funding. They pledged to support the funding of research for safer, more effective treatments for children battling cancer. With the help of 250 volunteers, his mom Gretchen baked and sold 96,000 cookies, raising more than $400,000 for research. Word spread, and people nationwide began asking, “How can I help?”
