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!
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.
Whether you shaved your head, clicked the “donate” button, or volunteered your time, YOU made this happen. Thank you.
Your support warms our hearts — we hope this news warms yours.
