The Ladybug Bash is the annual event where money is raised to fund national projects. This year, an additional goal of The Bash is to raise enough to give a grant to further pediatric cancer research.Each fund is dedicated in the name of a local child battling cancer with the goal of helping all children and families at that hospital. At The University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, the namesake of Atia’s Project Ladybug Fund is a young Chicago girl who was diagnosed with cancer at the tender age of 17 months old. After undergoing over two years of aggressive daily chemotherapy treatment, Atia is now six years old and in full remission.
