As the father of 5 children and married to a cancer survivor, Patrick has a very strong personal commitment to World Child Cancer’s vision to see a world where every child with cancer has access to the best possible treatment and care. Patrick is one of the founding members of World Child Cancer in the US and was immediately attracted to the incredible power of this charity, which lies in the simple fact that in developing countries it only costs $50 to provide early diagnosis and only $1,000 to save a child’s life. What an amazing way to make a difference and give back to future generations.
