As part of the event, Forbes/SHOOK will initiate a critical discussion to lead the industry in a historic effort to fight children’s cancer. In partnership with the Children’s Cancer Research Fund, the Forbes/SHOOK community will fund lifesaving research for children with Brain Tumors. All proceeds raised during the Top Advisors summit will enable a clinical trial for a new, potentially lifesaving therapy for children with brain tumors. Last year the group broke a Susan G. Komen record by raising $550,000 in two minutes to battle breast cancer.
