MILWAUKEE -- A young girl is raising awareness about childhood cancer with the help of some Packers alumni. Laura hangs at the Grain Exchange to preview the G9 Golden Celebration.

The G9 Project's mission is to raise awareness and inspire action for childhood cancer initiatives. To accomplish its global mission of raising awareness of childhood cancer and inspiring action for every child diagnosed, the G9 Project is committed to the long-term financial success of its partners and openly encourages donors to continue their current philanthropic support while inspiring a groundswell of new contributors to be a part of the childhood cancer solution.

Donations made directly to the G9 Project will be distributed in two ways:

Every Child: To help every child diagnosed with cancer now and in the future, funds will be distributed to the Children’s Oncology Group's Project: EveryChild in order to test and tissue bank cancer cells from every child with cancer cared for in a Children's Oncology Group program (more than 220 international programs).  Having an international biorepository is crucial for childhood cancer researchers everywhere so they can create and test new therapies.

Everywhere: To help children everywhere fighting pediatric cancer, funds from the G9 Project will also be distributed to the 27 G9 Centers of Excellence located across North America, which include the Children’s Oncology Group Phase 1 & Pilot Consortium (comprised of 21 premier pediatric oncology programs).  The G9 Centers of Excellence will use the funds for pediatric cancer research and clinical trials.
