In June of 2005, Cal Sutter, a 12-year old South Elgin Little League All-Star, was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia.
The battle with pediatric cancer is a horrible nightmare no child or family should ever have to experience. Yet, like most children, Cal never gave up hope and through it all, he was always more concerned about the well-being of the other children fighting cancer than he was about himself.
Even though Cal ultimately lost his battle with leukemia in August of 2006, the courage he displayed throughout his treatment inspired the start of Cal's All-Star Angel Foundation, Inc. (Cal's Angels) – a 501(c)(3) pediatric cancer foundation with a mission of granting wishes, raising awareness & funding research to help kids fighting cancer.
Until we hear the words “There is A Cure for Cancer” we will continue to fight on behalf of these young warriors and their families. We ask you to join us in the W.A.R. on pediatric cancer… together we CAN make a difference!
We have raised over $17 million since our founding in April of 2007 because of generous donors and supporters enabling us to bring unbelievable amounts of hope and support to thousands of pediatric cancer patients and their families.
