Help Elk & Elk and the Cavs Block Pediatric Cancer
Elk & Elk has partnered with the Cleveland Cavaliers to block pediatric cancer. The “Get That Weak Stuff Out of Here” Campaign ties each shot blocked by the team to a $100 donation from Elk & Elk to Cleveland Clinic Children’s.
Since the campaign’s inception, Elk & Elk has donated over $122,000 to help support life-changing research in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Leading cause of death in children
Although pediatric cases account for less than one percent of all cancers diagnosed annually, cancer is the leading cause of death by disease past infancy among children in the United States. More than ten thousand children under the age of 14 were expected to be diagnosed with cancer in 2017. The most common forms of pediatric cancer include leukemia, neuroblastoma and brain and central nervous system tumors.
