Mission Statement

To Make Ending Cancer A National Priority

Description

ASCEND is a nonprofit that seeks to make ending cancer a national priority. Chemo Duck is a program of ASCEND that uses a special duck to educate children and families about cancer.

It is the goal of the ASCEND Foundation to utilize the Chemo Duck program to increase awareness about cancer to all those surrounding each child affected by cancer. ASCEND wants to empower parents and family members to raise their voice about bringing awareness to cancer. We should no longer have to watch our children suffer from this horrific illness, nor should we accept the fact that more than half a million Americans die every year from cancer.

Through private and public support, the ASCEND Foundation is working to set up a Gabe's Chemo Duck program at every pediatric oncology center across the country and provide Chemo Duck to every child suffering from cancer free of charge.

Chemo Duck is becoming the mascot for a powerful grassroots program - the duck with a big heart and a bigger message - it's time we joined together and spoke up to find a cure!
