No child should have to deal with the effects of cancer and we want to increase the chances of recovery and survival by supporting families of children that are diagnosed
Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) September 27, 2017
Noffsinger Insurance Agencies, a Grand Rapids firm offering insurance and financial preparation assistance to communities in western Michigan, is launching a regional charity drive to raise awareness of deadly forms of childhood brain cancer and generate donations that will be used to fund research into treatments and cures.
Between 200-400 children each year are diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, a rare, aggressive, and deadly form of brain cancer. DIPG has claimed many lives, including two young local boys named Tommy Ruddy and Chad Carr.
With a less than 1% survival rate, DIPG has historically been considered too volatile for even a simple biopsy, but the Ruddy and Carr families are heading up donation gathering efforts for further research into potential treatments and cures, and Noffsinger Insurance Agencies is joining the fight.
“No child should have to deal with the effects of cancer and we want to increase the chances of recovery and survival by supporting families of children that are diagnosed,” says Mark Noffsinger, owner and agency principle of Noffsinger Insurance Agencies.
The Noffsinger team is assisting the Ruddy and Carr families in gathering local support for the cause through a series of publicity campaigns over email and social media. The firm is also producing a full page cover story on the charity event which will be released in the newest edition of “Our Hometown,” an online local interest magazine published by the firm: http://noffsingerinsuranceagencies.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.
This charity event is only one of many hosted by the Noffsinger Insurance Agencies since the firm became a regional affiliate of the “Agents of Change” charity network. The firm plans to continue to follow through with their commitment to assist regional charities by hosting new charity events on a quarterly basis.
All readers interested in standing with the Noffsinger Insurance team, along with the Ruddy and Carr families, are invited to help make a positive difference and assist DIPG research by following this link and taking action: http://noffsingerinsuranceagencies.com/Taking-A-Stand-Against-Childhood-Cancer_27_community_cause.
