Just like the Gold Rush of the 1800's we are working to reach every child fighting cancer through our Pot of Gold program and pushing for cures through advocacy on a legislative level.
Above & Beyond the Call of Duty
A Story of a Father Who Gave Back When it Mattered Most
A POT OF GOLD STORY
When Alan Van Tine decided to donate a Pot of Gold, he went above and beyond the call of duty -- not just because he is a trained naval officer, but because the donation was in remembrance of his beloved daughter.
Alan’s daughter Mila received her very own Pot of Gold before she died at the age of nine in 2014. Mila was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when she was four years old. Alan describes her as an “old soul,” who was interested in politics and dreamed of being a Navy nurse. She also loved helping others, and visited the homeless with him when she was healthy.
