Here at Community Controls we have chosen to focus on children charities through Community Controls Cares. It all start with our own experience through one of our employees who had a child diagnosed at 6 months old with Infantile Leukemia, her child had less than a 30% chance of survival. With this we realized the great need for awareness and funding for childhood cancer research. The truth is childhood cancer research receives less than 4% of the national cancer institute’s budget for all 16 types of cancer, 7 children die daily and 36 more are diagnosed with cancer. We decided that this is not acceptable and through Community Controls we would do our part in making a difference.
