The McDowell Family Lost A Child To Cancer And Now They Are Creating a Tourist Attraction to Fund Research– So Why Are Some Of The Neighbors So Angry?
Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)
Such a sad story. This is a friend of mine. His son died of a medulloblastoma and it was devastating. He got into fundraising for pediatric brain tumor research, and has made some large donations to the Musella Foundation and other research organizations. He had a vison for a huge fundraiser that will make a huge difference. He was going to create a tourist attraction where the profits go to pediatric brain tumor research. He bought the land, and drew up the plans but then ran into an "environmental" group who did not want it to happen. So they protest and sued him and shut down the project for now.
With all of the things going wrong with the world right now, these people pick saving the lives of kids with cancer to protest. Unbeleivable.
We have so many projects that could get done with the funding. We are running a major pediatric research project that may have to close down in about 2 weeks as we do not have the funding. I know of a few promising treatments that are just waiting for funding.
