Nail Cancer


Let's Nail Cancer is a campaign launched by Cure ATRT Now to bring awareness to pediatric brain cancer. This campaign was inspired by Avalanna Routh who lost her battle with brain cancer (AT/RT - atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor) at age six.

Throughout Avalanna’s six years with us, Avalanna brought out the best in everyone. We are forever in debt to our beautiful daughter who taught us to live life, laugh & love to the fullest.

Avalanna loved a good spa day, complete with manicure/ pedicure & massage. There was only one thing Avalanna loved more than having her nails painted and that was to paint other people’s nails. Avalanna famously painted the nails of many celebrities & had so much fun doing so.

It is with this in mind, that we say, "Let's Nail Cancer"

We ask you to paint your nails on Avalanna’s birthday, Sunday, October 25th, 2015. Please share the pictures of your painted nails on social media with the hashtag #Let'sNailCancer to bring awareness to this deadly disease that took Avalanna from us far too soon. Finally, we need you to join us in this fight by donating to fund a cure to this cancer that effects 260,000 children worldwide. Let's nail cancer together.

Thank you for supporting Cure ATRT Now in the fight against pediatric brain cancer. We do this in honor of Avalanna & all the brave children who have lost their battle with brain cancer. We continue to provide hope to families that are currently battling this disease. We will not stop until we have found a cure. One hundred per cent of all donations to the Let's Nail Cancer campaign will go directly to supporting this fight.

With heartfelt thanks,
Aileen & Cameron Routh
