HOW WE BEGAN
Our founder, William McGowan, lost his best friend, Tommy, to Osteosarcoma when they were both 12 years old. Throughout his life, he continued to lose friends and relatives to cancer…each time recalling the suffering that Tommy had endured. But in 2010, two children within his circle of friends died of cancer the same week. It was a crushing reality that he needed to do something to help bring an end to children’s cancer. Then, quite by chance, the next week he met someone at a street fair selling homemade cookies. Her name was Cheryl. He soon learned that she baked the cookies in her home and donated all the profits to support the needs of children and families involved in pediatric cancer treatment since she had lost her own daughter many years earlier to cancer. Right then, Bill knew this was his “aha moment.” He is a successful businessman with the time and talent to do something good that would have a positive impact on finding a cure for children’s cancer. Before long, he had developed his plans to sell cookies on a national basis and then donate all the profits to children’s cancer research. The love that Cheryl had for her daughter and her efforts to help find a cure were his inspiration. But, to go even further, he has planned to build a nationwide, community-based awareness of children’s cancer issues. And Cookies For a Cure was born.
