“Performance in the supercar range and surgically precise handling make the Corvette a track day darling when equipped with the Z51 package — but its ride over rough stretches is unexpectedly smooth and its cabin is comfortable enough for daily use.”

Worldwide, 300,000 families each year hear the words: Your child has cancer. Every day in the United States more than 40 kids are diagnosed with cancer, and it remains the number one cause of death by disease. For those who survive their diagnosis, two-thirds will suffer long-term effects from their treatment including loss of hearing and sight, heart disease, secondary cancers, cognitive disabilities, infertility and more. But you can offer these families hope by investing in childhood cancer research with Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation.
In 16 years, more than 60,000 people have done just that, raising nearly $14 million through the Corvette For A Cure program alone. And last year, 91 percent of you who made contributions covered your transaction costs — which adds up fast! — and nearly 2,000 especially generous people even made an additional donation. Nearly 100 folks went the extra mile and chose to have their additional contributions recur monthly. THIS is how we beat childhood cancer together.
Your donations fund lifesaving childhood cancer research in big cities and small towns across the country. We can’t do it without you.
Duke was born six days early, on Sept. 13, 2020, after a completely uneventful pregnancy and delivery (other than arriving during a global pandemic). He was 7 pounds, 7 ounces, and EVERYTHING his first-time parents dreamed of.
Less than eight weeks into enjoying their new baby boy, Duke’s parents noticed him “spitting up” more than usual. Their pediatrician prescribed an antacid and a hypoallergenic formula, which worked for a few weeks before the “spitting up” returned. Then they’d go back to the doctor and come home with a higher dose of antacid. After going through this four times without any real improvement, Hanna strengthened her resolve.
“I remember Daniel and I discussing going back to the pediatrician the next morning so they could see him again,” Hanna said. “I told Daniel I didn’t want them to write it off like it was nothing because it wasn’t normal. Yes, I was a first-time mom, but I knew in my heart something wasn’t right.”
Hanna can still recall every detail from the visit to the pediatrician’s office the next day. She told the doctor that she couldn’t leave until she knew what was wrong with her baby. And then she watched as the doctor spent extra time examining Duke’s tummy area, repeatedly going back to one spot, comparing it to the other side.
“The doctor told me she knew I was going to have a lot of questions, but that she felt a mass in Duke’s abdomen. I called Daniel right away and we were rushed to an ultrasound. After our pediatrician read the results, she told us to pack our bags and head to the ER at UNC Hospitals, 65 miles away — they would be expecting us.”
