Why is research needed?
Research is needed because one in five children do not survive cancer. This is unacceptable. Our Children deserve better options.
The young bodies of survivors are often damaged due to the current treatments of radiation and chemotherapy. Research can provide less toxic and more targeted options producing better results with less side effects.
