Partnership To Support Advancements In Pediatric Cancer Research
Jacksonville, FL – October 10, 2017– Sports stars know it; super heroes know it; even furry little aliens named Farful FoolongTM know it – “Victory” can be achieved when creativity, learning and fun meet the quest for answers through research.
Panshoo, LLC, the imaginative, multimedia company sparking children’s passion for reading, writing and creative thinking, is teaming up with the V Foundation for Cancer Research to support advancements in pediatric cancer research.
The marketing and promotional campaign will support the V Foundation’s efforts to achieve victory over pediatric cancer, as well as share Panshoo’s mission to ignite children’s imagination and to think outside the box.
“We are proud to team up with the V Foundation to achieve victory over pediatric cancer,” says Nick Loren, Founder of Panshoo, LLC. “We are thrilled to expand Farful Foolong’s adventures to include the fight against childhood cancer and to show how children of all ages can make a difference.”
Panshoo’s flagship book Farful Foolong From Oolong Panshoo introduced the adorable alien, Farful Foolong, who saved his planet from Grey Bubble-Goo. Panshoo will introduce a new book, Yuckity-Uck, featuring Farful and a new character, Bubbles. Farful’s furry sidekick Bubbles, supports “Victory over the Yuckity-Uck (cancer),” which is the leading cause of death by disease among children. Learn more by visiting www.PanshooWorld.com.
“It is our hope that Panshoo’s characters Farful and Bubbles will bring joy, learning, comfort and a determined, CAN-DO attitude to children touched by cancer,” says Susan Braun, CEO of the V Foundation. “They can also help children better understand a friend or sibling with cancer and overcome some of the fear and helplessness they may feel.”
Proceeds and donations from the marketing partnership will fund pediatric cancer research through the V Foundation at www.jimmyv.org/Panshoo. In addition to Panshoo books and merchandise, the company plans to launch live action hospital shows, book tours, a fun and educational web series, apps & video games and more.
