The Ashley Lauren Foundation Club at Rutgers provides financial and emotional support to families of children facing pediatric cancer. The club is an independent, non-profit organization, based in Spring Lake, New Jersey. According to their mission statement, they illustrate a strong commitment to providing direct financial, material and emotional support for children and their families. Pediatric cancer is the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 14, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). An estimated 1,250 children are expected to succumb to the disease in 2016, with about 10,380 children diagnosed last year. The club will host an event in February called the "RU Brew: Cup Of Love" CoffeeHouse event at the Red Lion Cafe on the College Avenue Campus.
