10 year old Ruby Kaufman was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma in 2010. After one year of grueling treatment, Ruby decided that she wanted to help other kids who were diagnosed with some type of cancer so she created a fundraiser called Ruby’s Dance Till You Drop. That fundraiser raised $72,000. Eventually, through the efforts of Ruby’s family, the Rally Foundation, and Dr. Sam Volchenboum, a grant was awarded with the money that Ruby raised from her fundraiser to help with research in the fight against this cancer. This initial grant proved successful, and now millions of dollars in grant money has been received because of the success of the first grant, and has been used to create one of the largest Data Research Systems to help in the overall fight against Pediatric Cancer. This story is a great win for everyone involved.
