Despite the fact that 100,000 children in the United States suffer from cancer each year, the FDA has only approved one new treatment for any type of pediatric cancer since the 1980s. That's why Dell is donating its unique technology and expertise where it can do the most good for children like Brooke. By teaming up with physicians, researchers and scientists, Dell is helping to support the first FDA-approved precision medicine clinical trial for pediatric cancer through donated technology that helps to accelerate time for treatment.
Thank you for your continued support in the fight against childhood cancer. You can keep helping kids like Brooke and her family by sharing Dell's video with your friends! (http://www.causes.com/causes/789392-powering-the-possible/actions/1672930?open_inviter=true)
