WE DID IT!
After seeing Life According to Sam, our generous friend Robert Kraft issued a Matching Gift Challenge to help Sam and his friends, up to $500,000 from October 8-23rd to jump-start our $4 million campaign for the triple trial. Thanks to thousands of generous people, we raised $678,262. With the Kraft Challenge match that's nearly $1.18 million so that more children can participate in our clinical trials, and more research can go into finding the cure. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
