Giving Rocks Foundation raised more than a half million dollars to date through fundraising events and the sale of rock necklaces and other related merchandise. However, the goal of finding a cure for LCH, and ending pediatric cancer, won’t happen without the deeply committed researchers and the research centers and foundations that support them.

The foundation applauds their dedication and work, and urges you to learn more by visiting their websites.
