For an extra $50, you can make a statement with your license plate and fight cancer at the same time. Eight-year-old Zoe Pramuk of Decatur appeared with her mother, her doctor, and her state senator to announce the Curing Childhood Cancer license plate.  It features a gold ribbon, the symbol of children's cancer awareness, and orange letters, the color symbolizing leukemia.  Dr. Greg Brandt, a Springfield pediatric oncologist, considers her cancer-free.

Zoe’s mother, Jennifer Pramuk, says she came up with the idea of a license plate as a fund-raiser while making the innumerable trips between Decatur and Springfield.

Per state law, no plates will be made until there are 1,500 ordered. The surcharge will be divided between St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and Children’s Oncology Group.
