About our Beneficiary - The Scott Carter Foundation
Scott Carter was a 13-year old boy who died in December 1993 after a courageous three-year battle with bone cancer. During the duration of his illness, he put together a remarkable collection of sports and celebrity memorabilia which he called “Scott Carter’s Heroes”. His dream was to display the collection for the enjoyment of the public and to raise money for children’s cancer research.
Scott believed that if enough time, energy and money were devoted to children’s cancer research, a cure could be found for this dreaded disease, the number one disease killer of children today in the United States. The Scott Carter Foundation was formed to raise money to further Scott’s dream of finding that cure! The foundation is supported through private donations and a variety of fund raisers.
Because the Scott Carter Foundation is operated out of the Carter’s home by volunteers, almost all money raised goes toward funding research projects. A local committee including several physicians and headed by Scott’s grandfather, Dr. Paul Compton, help us to evaluate where our money goes. For the most part, over the past ten years we have chosen to fund “fellowships” for young but promising physicians through the National Childhood Cancer Foundation.
