“Online for a Cure" is back!!
This is the 2nd year for The Cure Starts Now Virginia Chapter’s on-line fundraiser. It follows in the footsteps of the successful 10 year, annual, On Course Fore A Cure golf event that was held each May during brain tumor awareness month in memory of Morgan Pritchett. Just like last year, simply make an on-line donation on this page to help us continue to raise much needed funding for pediatric brain cancer research.
On-Line for a Cure will kick off on May 1st, the first day of brain tumor awareness month, and run through May 15th. Our goal is to raise $50,000 in 15 days. 100% of your donation (after credit card processing fees) will go directly to pediatric brain cancer research. CSN allocates all direct donations specifically for research.
$50k in 15 days
Although there is hope on the horizon regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the past year has been filled with challenges and hardship for many of us. We have all been impacted in some way. CSN has also felt the impact of the pandemic induced lockdowns which necessitated the cancellation of hundreds of “in-person” fundraisers. Event revenue dropped by over $600,000 in 2020. This decrease had a direct effect on the level of funding that could be awarded for pediatric brain cancer research. And although our lives as we knew them came to a halt when the pandemic hit, cancer did not stop and the need to fund vital research did not go away. In the same way that the vaccines are providing hope for the end of the pandemic, cancer research funding can provide hope to the families dealing with the devastating news of a childhood cancer diagnosis. Hope is a powerful gift! Your donation can help make that gift possible.
Throughout the 15 day campaign, we will be sending out periodic emails with information about the fundraiser, recent research breakthroughs, current CSN happenings, and updates on our progress towards reaching our $50,000 goal. If you would like to receive these campaign updates, please send an email to: email@example.com.
Note: If you have been receiving “On Course Fore a Cure” emails, you will automatically be included in these updates.
As always, we are truly grateful for your support. Your generosity is very much appreciated. THANK YOU!!

This fundraiser is held in memory of Morgan Pritchett a.k.a. "Lady Bug". Morgan was born on 7/15/02 and was diagnosed with a DIPG brain tumor on 10/31/07 at the age of 5. After a hard fought, courageous, twenty-month battle, she earned her angel wings on 6/30/09 just two weeks shy of her 7th birthday. She loved arts and crafts, music, singing and dancing, planning parties and dressing up like a princess. Her perseverance and determination throughout her illness – despite the increasing physical limitations she endured as a result of the tumor – were inspirations to many, many people whose lives she touched forever.
Thank you for your donation to The Cure Starts Now Foundation, your receipt has been emailed to you. If you donated in honor of a person, a card acknowledgement of your generous gift will be sent to the family at the address you provided.
100% of this donation, after credit card processing fees, goes directly to research to find the homerun cure for cancer starting with pediatric brain cancer research. Your generosity enables us to continue in this mission and fund innovative and groundbreaking research that is truly making a difference in these kids’ lives. With your donation we are celebrating these smallest of heroes with the gift of hope.
From all of the families at The Cure Starts Now, thank you for your generosity!
