From the jam-packed phone lines to the inspirational interviews with childhood cancer families, the 12th Annual Alex Scott: A Stand For Hope Telethon was a smashing success! Your generosity made this a record-breaking year that will help researchers discover less toxic treatments and hopefully one day, a cure.
All day at the CBS3 studio, childhood cancer heroes like Lauren, whose doctors continue to monitor her inoperable brain tumor, and Danny, who relapsed in December 2017 and started his second fight with cancer, shared their amazing stories. Their courage clearly inspired you too, as the phones were lighting up late into the night!
Special thanks to all the volunteers who monitored the phones and to everyone who donated. It truly was an energetic day full of positivity, excitement and most importantly, hope. If you want to be prepped for next year, sign up to be notified for the 2019 telethon.
