Attorney Vincent Pravato supports the I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation
Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato is proud to lend our support to the I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation. Attorney Vincent Pravato has recently been added to the foundation’s board of directors and we are pleased to be a part of such an outstanding organization.
The I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation is involved in raising public awareness for the support and development of new, advanced therapies to help childhood cancer patients. The goal of the foundation’s efforts is to make the usually harsh treatments the patients have to go through become milder and more bearable for these young boys and girls who are fighting this disease. The foundation wants to dispel the idea that childhood cancer treatment has to be painful and debilitating, a belief that helps isolate children from their peers.
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato announced the firm’s support of the I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation. The foundation has added Director of Marketing attorney Vincent Pravato to the organization’s board of directors.
The I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation focuses on the development of groundbreaking, targeted therapies for childhood cancer. Primarily, the nonprofit support developments that work to ease treatments for the youngest cancer patients, making the road to recovery “gentler and more tolerable.”
“When you consider what we do at our law firm, this relationship makes perfect sense,” Pravato said. “Above all else, we strive to alleviate pain and suffering—both emotional and physical. Supporting the I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation is a natural extension into the community of our efforts in the courtroom. It aligns with our purpose as a law firm, and we are deeply inspired by this involvement.”
How one child’s suffering will help other children
Like many nonprofits, to genuinely appreciate the heart of the I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation, it helps to know how the organization began.
It all started with a boy named Ian. Ian was a curious boy who loved baseball and playing his guitar.
At the age of 10, Ian was diagnosed with Leukemia. He endured an aggressive treatment plan that included radiation and chemotherapy. The treatments weakened his immune system, making Ian vulnerable to the most common of sicknesses. He passed away only six months after being diagnosed.
“We learned of Ian’s story, and although it is tragic from start to finish, one aspect really struck us hard,” Pravato said. “We heard that throughout his illness, Ian often asked why the treatment had to hurt as much as it did. No child should have to endure such suffering.
At that moment, we knew we wanted to be involved in helping the foundation. We want to do what we can to ensure that someday soon for children who suffer from cancer, the pain of the cure does not rival the pain of the disease.”
Helping to ease the pain
Some parts of cancer therapies prove to be particularly harsh on the patients. For a young child, such treatments can make them wonder if the cure might be worse than the sickness. The I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation hopes for a future when children no longer suffer from cancer. Until that day, the organization has tasked itself with facilitating the development of less painful and debilitating treatments for young victims of this disease.
This commitment to improving—not just merely extending—the lives of child cancer patients has resulted in the foundation’s dual-pronged mission. The nonprofit is committed to developing new cancer therapies and to raising public awareness about the real potential for cutting-edge cancer treatments for children.
The I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation wants to inform the public that they can help fund important research to eradicate cancer and make treatments more tolerable. People who want to help the foundation accomplish its goals can donate at the I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation website.
Cancer patients who are the victims of malpractice may have legal options
Sadly, some cancer patients have worse outcomes due to medical malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when a negligent doctor or medical care facility does not provide a reasonable standard of medical care and their patient is harmed.
These injuries can occur due to:
- A misdiagnosis
- A missed diagnosis
- The administration of the wrong medications
- Other acts of medical negligence
If you or a loved one was injured by medical negligence, a cancer malpractice lawyer in Florida from our firm can help you fight for compensation.
Cancer misdiagnosis and wrongful death
