NBC15 anchor/reporter John Stofflet spoke to the DeForest Area Rotary Club on Wednesday, April 29 about the Badger Childhood Cancer Network.  Stofflet serves on the Board of Directors, and is the current President, for the non-profit organization. According to Stofflet, "childhood cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the United States."  

The mission of the organization is "to educate, support, serve and advocate for children with cancer and blood disorders, their families, survivors of childhood cancer and the professionals who care for them." They provide appropriate support to children with cancer and blood disorders and their families, from diagnosis to the end of treatment, into survivorship or through bereavement.

Stofflet explained several of the organization's many programs, such as hero beads and new diagnosis bags, and encouraged Rotarians to become involved as a volunteer and to donate where possible.
