Cut for the Cure is a fundraising campaign benefiting the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF), which raises money for pediatric oncology research through their research initiative, the Sunshine Project. The Sunshine Project is a collaboration of the nation’s top doctors and researchers to find less toxic, more targeted treatments and to ultimate find a cure for pediatric cancer.


Joe Lamphier, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Crown Automotive Group, is proud to announce that he will be participating in Cut for a Cure to benefit the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

Cut for a Cure is the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s annual campaign to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer. Individuals who participate in the campaign set a fundraising goal to encourage their friends and family to donate money, and at the end of the campaign, shave their heads in honor of children who struggle with cancer.

Lamphier plans to shave his head on June 15, and has set a fundraising goal of $10,000, which he hopes to reach by that date. He has dedicated his efforts through Cut for the Cure to honor two particular individuals he knows who battled pediatric cancer: Dana Bertoch-Levin and Remi Stortch, and their families.

“I’ve supported the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation for many years, serving on the Board of Directors since about 2001 and serving as its President from 2006-2007,” said Lamphier. “It’s a cause that’s near and dear to my heart, and I’m honored to be able to have this opportunity to participate in a way that can directly impact the lives of the children and families that the Foundation works with each day.”

Pediatric cancer is the No. 1 cause of death by disease in children, and according to the Foundation, 43 children per day or 15,780 children will be diagnosed with cancer this year. All the money raised through Lamphier’s Cut for the Cure fundraising campaign will benefit the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation and their research initative, the Sunshine Project.
