November 3, 2016

It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter, the leaves are falling from the trees, and there’s a new chill in the air. But don’t worry about pulling out that sweater, because we’ve got just the news to warm you right up — and you helped make it happen!

Announcing our 2016 Fall Grants

Today, we are proud to announce the 2016 St. Baldrick’s Infrastructure Grants, totaling $2.1 million awarded to 39 institutions across the United States.

These grants help institutions hire the staff and get the resources for clinical trials. These trials are a vital part of the research process, and for many kids with cancer, they are their best hope for a cure.
