“I hope that the foundation’s work will be able to help other families going through similar circumstances,” he said. “Even research for pediatric cancer, so people don’t have to go through it. I was like, ‘This is a perfect opportunity. We can take everything we’ve done and spread the light. can.”

On Friday, Cannon and Scott attended “a beautiful lighting ceremony to honor the life of an angel” to commemorate the foundation’s launch. She also thanked the Children’s Hospital of Orange County on Instagram for helping with the opening ceremony.

“Can’t wait for next year where our lighting gala will continue [to] Grow to Help Find a Pediatric Cure [c]Anser, with further research and help to comfort more families during difficult times,” Cannon wrote.
