A History of Fighting Childhood Cancer
Major League Baseball has made it a goal to support the fight against childhood cancer while helping to raise awareness for the deadly disease.
From the MLB website:
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. As a founding donor of Stand Up To Cancer, MLB and its 30 Clubs have committed more than $43 million in financial support and in-kind assets for the fight against cancer. The work of the Stand Up To Cancer – St. Baldrick’s Foundation Pediatric Cancer Dream Team, launched in 2013 to help develop new immunotherapy approaches to childhood cancers, has resulted in significant achievements.
With some prices already headed towards $3000 it’s likely you’ll end up shelling out quite a bit of cash for your favorite team but it’s for a very worthwhile cause.
