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. To do this, our first project is through a partnership with MSK Kids (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Pediatrics Program). We have been working with a group of world-renowned doctors and, together, have identified projects that will have an immediate impact on the lives of children at MSK and other hospitals, as well as a more long-term project that ultimately can change the way cancer is treated for everyone. These projects are costly, but the impact is immense. Eleven years ago a group of parents raised money for a project to create an antibody treatment, hoping it would save their children. For many it was too late. This very project was awarded the “Breakthrough Therapy Designation” 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 help doctors change the cancer landscape. We can have an immediate impact, and we intend to do so. We can’t wait to walk this journey with you. 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!
