CHICAGO -- Two brothers know all about successful fundraising campaigns. In just the past year, the teens have raised $200,000 for children's cancer research.

They've held school fundraisers, like a Shave-a-Head event, and went door-to-door for donations. The duo is inspired by cancer victims they knew including a great uncle who died of the disease.

This story just gets better. The older brother has been fundraising for four years. In that time, he alone raised more than $500,000.
