Brain cancer is the deadliest form of cancer affecting children, yet it receives less than 1% of national cancer research funding. Bubbles for Brain Cancer is a national campaign to rally awareness and bridge critical research gaps in order to find better treatments – and eventually a cure – for brain cancer. Are you up to the challenge?
Where will the funds go?
100% of the funds raised will go to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Specifically, the $1M+ will be split evenly between Dr. David Reardon and Dr. Mark Kieran. This injection of resources will help them continue their research and continue developing new treatments for brain cancer, especially in children.
They have treatments right now that are proven to lessen the pain and lengthen the lives of children suffering from brain cancer. To put the importance of their work into focus, over 4,600 children will be diagnosed with brain cancer this year.
The problem – it takes real money to get these treatments out of the lab and into the hands of the people that need it most. Our $1 million goal will get them there faster.
“Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is honored to be the beneficiary of the Bubbles for Brain Cancer campaign. Our doctors, Mark Kieran and David Reardon, are at the forefront of brain cancer research. These additional funds will accelerate their efforts, and deliver new treatments faster than ever before.”
