Go the Distance Ernie Holly cares about childhood cancer research.  As the owner of Timeline Media Productions (www.timelinemp.com ) and a board member for Team Will Non Profit (www.team-will.org )- a community of bicyclists that raises funds and awareness for childhood cancer research through cycling activities- he is spreading the word about a documentary not to miss.

In the summer of 2008, 16 members of Team Will rode across America on bicycles in 10 days, starting in San Francisco and ending in Washington D.C. to help successfully lobby in front of congress for the passage of the “Carolyn Pryce Walker Conquer Childhood Cancer Act” which granted over $130 million dollars to childhood cancer research.  Throughout the 10 days, the cyclists also made stops at pediatric oncology centers along the way to visit children and their families.

As a Team Will board member, he wholeheartedly believes in this cause and, as a result, has  personally donated his time and resources from his production company to create the documentary that tells a story focusing on Team Will’s ride as well as the “Heroes” (Children with Cancer) they rode for.  It is an hour long, geared towards the general public and carries a very clear message that “it’s not alright to sit back and let things happen when you can make a difference.”  The hope is for the final product to be premiered across the country at various venues to help spread the message as well as to be entered in film festivals.

If you visit the following website, you will be able to find out more about the documentary as well as view a 3 minute trailer:  www.gothedistancemovie.com .

Ernie has received overwhelming help & support from many organizations so far for “Go the Distance” including Universal Pictures, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University, “Explosions in the Sky” music band, “.38 Special” music band, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent, IN., CureSearch National Childhood Cancer Foundation, Hope Street Kids Foundation, Sports Illustrated and the Office of Senator Wayne Allard, CO. just to name a few.

City of HopeJI had the opportunity to speak at several Orange County hospitals this weekend, spreading the word about our mission of 1-on-1 cancer support to of City of Hope Hospital, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, UC-Irvine Cancer Center, and the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. 

Jonny visits hospitals all around the country to educate clinical staff on the service of Imerman Angels, providing information that will help cancer fighters and survivors to be connected in 1-on-1 support relationships.

City of Hope is one of forty hospitals designated by the National Cancer Institute (the government’s primary agency for cancer research and training) as a comprehensive research center.  Supported by FOX Sports, they will be featured throughout the playoffs in the month of January.  They were, also, recently granted $32.5 to research tumor-targeting stem cells.

The UC-Irvine Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center is also NCI designated and works closely with our friend-organization “I’m Too Young for This”, a online community for young adults fighting cancer.

The Children’s Hospital of Orange County is the 18th busiest children’s hospital in the country.  They are well-known for their Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Program, which “gives adolescents access to the latest opportunities for a cure, tailoring treatment specifically to their age group. CHOC offers age-appropriate, disease-appropriate treatment in an environment that allows individuals to feel comfortable and at ease.”

The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles is an international leader in the comprehensive care of children and teens with cancer.  They have several specialized programs geared towards life-after-cancer: school transition/ re-entry, life  planning, group retreats for survivors and other community geared events.
