If you are an Amazon shopper and don't have a favorite charity, we ask you to support ours, the Chordoma Foundation.
Fun Fact: Just one of the many CF accomplishments has been testing all FDA approved drugs against chordoma... over 1800 of them. Ponder that approach: Rather than finding a pharmaceutical company to invest hundreds of millions of dollars from research through the all stages of clinical trials to develop a cure; does an existing FDA approved drug already exist that would be effective against chordoma? The answer is yes, numerous show promise. What a concept! Given chordoma affects only one in a million like Madison, there would no incentive for large pharmaceutical companies to even consider a new drug.
Madison and her family request that you please watch a two minute video at this link about the founder of the Chordoma Foundation and executive director, Josh Sommer. He was diagnosed in 2006 at age 18... just like Madison.
If you don't already have a favorite charity and are Amazon shoppers (who isn't, right?!), Madison and her family ask that you please take 60 seconds today, and connect your existing Amazon account via https://smile.amazon.com, to the Chordoma Foundation: a non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of people like Madison affected by chordoma, while leading the search for a cure.
Again, no hooks, no fees, no spam, literally free money! This Amazon program donates 0.5% of every Amazon purchase directly charity... it's that simple!
