CURE is pleased
to be partnering again with the American Culinary Federation: Rochester's
Professional Chefs/Cooks Association

CURE Childhood Cancer
Association is a local organization that was founded in 1976 by a group of
Rochester parents who had lost a child to cancer. They found there were
specific needs that were not being met during their unique childhood cancer
journeys, and so CURE Childhood Cancer Association was formed. CURE's mission
is to improve the lives of families coping with childhood cancer and chronic
blood disorders through providing emotional, educational, social and financial
support; promoting and funding research towards a cure.
