Combined Efforts: First Partnership Grants of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and the American Cancer Society
When a patient is fighting cancer, a combination of two cancer treatments often works better than just one. Since August of 2019, another kind of combination has been at work to fight childhood cancers: A partnership between the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and the American Cancer Society.
Today we are excited to announce the first set of research projects to be supported by this partnership, totaling more than $2.8 million.
