A determined young man has taken on the task of raising awareness of and funding for pediatric cancer research. Malcolm Sutherland-Foggio was 10 when he was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma. He launched the Make Some Noise: Cure Kids Cancer foundation the very next year. Now, the 14 year old is touring the country with a special quilt made of squares commemorating young lives lost to cancer.
Malcolm joined Margaret to talk about what inspired him to start the foundation, which is opening its Northwest chapter this weekend,a nd about his quest to make sure that the National Angel Quilt does not grow any larger.
The National Angel Quilt will be on display at the Kids' Discovery Museum on Bainbridge Island this Thursday and Friday (April 19 and 20). Then, on Saturday, April 21, there will be a kickoff reception at the Manor House on Point Pleasant Beach on Bainbridge Island. For more information about the event, please click here.
