Thank you for joining us at this year's Dawn of a Dream.

Your generosity helped raise $1.28 million for childhood cancer research!

Throughout the evening, we shared stories of strength demonstrated by the children, families and doctors who fight childhood cancer and genetic diseases every day.

Because of you, researchers at the University of Minnesota will continue to make life-changing – and lifesaving – discoveries in the pursuit of better treatments and cures. Thank you!

Leukemia survivor, Caiah, sings Rachel Platten's "Fight Song"

In 2008, just three days before her seventh birthday, Caiah was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Today, Caiah is cancer-free and thriving as an eighth grader. She loves to sing and write music.

Isaac's Story: Not Going Down Without a Fight

11-year-old Isaac was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in October 2014. Now, a year later, he has finished treatment and has had clear scans. But, there's still work to be done for kids like Isaac. Very little progress has been made for sarcomas in the past decades. That's why Children's Cancer Research Fund is funding leading-edge research to eradicate sarcomas once and for all.

Pictures from the evening are now available here.
