Our goal is to find and fund cutting edge research to eliminate any barriers that prevent potential life changing treatments from being used on those who need it the most – our children. We have been working with a group of world-renowned doctors and, together, have identified projects that can clearly show where your support is going and how it is used. These dollars will have an impact on the lives of children at MSK and other hospitals, in time, we will illustrated how your dollars ultimately can change the way cancer is treated for everyone.
A one project which we funded this past year was awarded the “Breakthrough Therapy Designation” by the FDA last fall, and is now a standard part of MSK protocol for children with Neuroblastoma. That project is part of what has saved our daughter’s life. The doctors who invented that treatment have other treatments that they believe can continue to alter the way cancer (not just Neuroblastoma) is treated.
Our vision is to illuminate the way pediatric cancer research is funded, and to create an awareness about the importance of researching childhood cancers. We can have an immediate impact, and we intend to do so. Let us know how you want to be part of this force and change for good; we welcome your enthusiasm, compassion, expertise, and passion. Whether you choose to spread the word, host an event, donate your time, contribute financially, or attend an event, we can’t wait to hear from you!
