Welcome to Four Square Clobbers Cancer!
Four-Square Clobbers Cancer is a conversational blog that is dedicated to improving the outcomes of children, adolescents, and young adults who are being treated or have been treated for cancer. The goal is to inform, communicate and collaborate with those in the cancer community.
Four-Square is a very popular game played by children, adolescents and even young adults. Following the rules and reacting to the constant changing path of a big orange ball, the object is to stay in the game as long as possible. It’s kind of like the game of life, where the object is to react favorably to the fast, changing things that come your way, stay healthy, live as long as possible and have fun.
Four-Square by definition is also used as an adjective that means firm and resolute, especially in support of someone or something. “We stand four-square in our conviction to improve the therapies and outcomes of children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer.”
Clobber is actually a term used in the game of Four-Square and, coincidently, it means the same thing in the game of life. It’s what everyone wants to do to cancer!

today i found your blog and website…and right there was Carry Me, the book our son Carson wrote during his fight for life….
his valiant fight started when he was 14 and ended when he was 17…
when cancer was relentless & the docs said there were no other treatments, Carson’s ONLY wish was to have his book published, it was published 6 days before he died…
Then his dying wish was to have the tumors that invaded his brain studied…with a dream to help the next kid not die from cancer like he was…we honored his dying wish and have not stopped..GREAT AMAZING progress in research are being made…with those disgusting tumors
Friday I met the braniac who is studying the tumors from Carson’s brain…
