Kids Raise Awareness and Funds through Crafts for Cancer

9News | October 02, 2015

A group of children in Colorado Springs have created a fun and unique way of supporting their friend Carter Gates, a 10-year-old patient at Children’s Hospital Colorado, who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Leukemia ALL T-cell.

Each month, the group of friends and their families host Crafts for Cancer, and sell homemade baked good, toys and crafts and give the proceeds to cancer research at Children’s Colorado.

More than $2,100 raised for cancer research

The kids have raised more than $2,100 for research, and recently, visited the lab at Children's Colorado to see where the proceeds benefit. That lab recently named a nitrogen freezer after Crafts for Cancer and in honor of Carter.
