CURE: Childhood Cancer in China
CURE Childhood Cancer in China is a 501 C (3) non-profit corporation headquartered in Columbus, Ohio dedicated to the treatment and cure of childhood cancer in China. From CURE's incorporated in 2000 until early 2006, CURE’s initial Board of Trustees and Senior Consultants consisted mostly of world-recognized medical experts in childhood cancers. All agreed to serve as volunteers. They were selected on the basis that their efforts would be humanitarian in nature without expectation of further personal or organizational aggrandizement. Their support has succeeded in assisting CURE’s mission in all ways except development of adequate funding to begin its first major project that will assist China to develop a new world-class center for the cure of childhood cancer. While most board members and senior consultants will continue to serve and be available as needed, CURE’s Board of Trustees will now be composed of business experts that primarily will bring business acumen. Several have agreed to serve, and the new structure should be in place by April 1, 2006. Many of the previous board members have agreed to serve on board subcommittees and/or as individual consultants. The current officers of CURE will continue to serve and meet with the Board. One of the new Board members is a leading Chinese heart surgeon in Beijing, who maintains a close working partnership with China.
CURE has functioned for the past several years without salary support. This will change as the current development effort provides support for the essential staff required for its effective operation. CURE now has a voluntary Executive Director for the United States efforts, Mr. Joseph G. Fleck, an experienced business specialist. Mr. Peter M. Norman, a recently retired expert in development, is CURE’s Director of Development. Dr. Xiao Ping Shen, CURE’s Executive Director in China who has served locally for several years, is now CURE’s Executive Director in China. . He is also on the faculty of the SIPO Polytechnical Institute in Shanghai as Dean of the Departments of Health, Science and Nursing,. He is also a member of the International Board of Trustees of the Soong Ching Ling Foundation, Shanghai.
