Max's Ring of Fire in the Media
San Diego, CA – March 15, 2011- Max's Ring of Fire is gearing up to bring back its annual Touch-A-Truck fundraiser, from 10AM – 3PM on June 4, 2011 at Torrey Pines High School. As always, 100% of the money raised goes directly to support cutting-edge research and clinical trials for childhood cancer.
Amy Crisman, oncology nurse at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego, has a heart of gold. She’s been working in the children’s cancer unit for 23 years, has seen miraculous recoveries, and experienced the loss of too many children to childhood cancer. Crisman frequently participates in fundraisers that benefit children with cancer, and helps wherever she can. She has been a strong support to Melissa Mikulak of Carmel Valley whose son, Max Mikulak, lost his battle to cancer at age 7. When Melissa Mikulak asked Crisman if she could hang a few fliers at the hospital for an upcoming kids’ cancer fundraiser, she naturally said yes.

The parents of children battling a very deadly pediatric cancer, or who have lost a child to this disease, have united to help fund the efforts to try and save kids battling relapsed neuroblastoma. This spirit of collaboration mirrors the doctors who are collaborating for a cure as part of the NMTRC consortium.
Kids and their parents can revel in the sights, sounds and feel of a fun assortment of vehicles at a cancer fundraiser called Touch a Truck, planned at Torrey Pines High School next month.
