Time to sip on that hot chocolate, wear your favorite pair of fuzzy socks and cozy up to great news that will warm your heart — and you helped make it happen!

Announcing our 2017 Infrastructure Grants

Today, we are proud to announce the 2017 St. Baldrick’s Infrastructure Grants, totaling $2.2 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.
