believe in supporting
Every child undergoing cancer treatment at Dayton Children's is a hero fighting for his or her life. The Women's Board of Dayton Children's wants to ensure these brave children and their families have the tools they need, when they need it most. Like a dedicated child life specialist who can help take the "scary" out of chemotherapy. Or a brilliant box of beads--each representing an accomplishment in the battle against cancer--that when strung together tell the story of a child's courageous journey.

The Women’s Board believes in the lifesaving work being done by the experts at Dayton Children's, one of only 10 nationally accredited pediatric cancer care programs housed in a freestanding children’s hospital. We will dedicate the proceeds from CHA-CHA 2013 to a very important cause: the Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Endowment. This fund will provide special staffing and programs to support children fighting cancer at Dayton Children's. We believe that, together, we can help make a young cancer warrior's journey better.
