Who We Are
The Rose Lowenstein Foundation for Childhood Cancer Awareness is a Missouri non-profit corporation and has received 501(c)(3) tax-exempt designation from the IRS. Our mission is to raise awareness of childhood cancer and to assist area families affected by childhood cancer in their time of need.
By supporting The Rose Lowenstein Foundation, you help an area family fight for their child’s life. One person can raise awareness of childhood cancer, but it takes a community to make a difference.
Through Rose's story we desire to bring HOPE to those that need it most.
We aim to garner compassion from the larger community, not to incite fear...
but rather to raise awareness of this monster.
Only when awareness is reached, will funding happen: Funding for research.
Funding to directly impact families.
Funding to hospitals so they may continue their amazing work.
Only through funding is there a chance for a CURE. A CURE must be found.
1 in 285 children are diagnosed. Worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer every 2 minutes, 1 in 5 will not survive. Only 4% of the National Funding goes towards childhood cancer research.
We need you, your compassion, to help us raise awareness. To help us directly impact area families fighting for their child's life. It takes one person to raise awareness of childhood cancer, but it takes a community to make a difference.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
When you have a child that is diagnosed with cancer your only thought is “what is the best thing I can do for my child at all costs.” Those costs are very real.
Medical bills mount up, and often times the best treatment requires travel away from home. In addition to the primary concern of the health of their child, families end up facing a mountain of medical bills and other expenses. The goal for Home Runs for Rose is to make a direct impact on the lives of area families who are fighting for their child’s life. Your generous support will help to ensure the success of Home Runs for Rose, so that we may in-turn lighten the financial burden and stress of those families affected by this awful disease.
IN THE SPOTLIGHT – OUR HEROES
ONE PERSON CAN RAISE AWARENESS OF CHILDHOOD CANCER, BUT IT TAKES A COMMUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
