In honor of Jacob Froman, forever 10. Changing the landscape of pediatric cancer research.
PEDIATRIC CANCER FACTS
Research for pediatric cancer is profoundly underfunded.
Jacob received about the same treatment as he would have received if he had been born 30 years earlier.
When we donated Jacob's brain tumor to researchers after Jacob died, two significant scientific breakthroughs were acheived. One scientist developed the first xenographic mouse model of postmortem brain tumor tissue, pediatric or adult. One scientist did a genetic comparison of primary versus metastatic tissue.
KIDS V CANCER promotes pediatric-cancer research by identifying roadblocks at key junctures in the process and developing strategies to overcome them. Our goal is to help scientists develop new drugs, secure tissue for research, and gain access to funding for their important work.
