We are thrilled to announce $1.1 million in new grants to bolster pediatric cancer clinical trial enrollment. Clinical trials play a crucial role in the fight against childhood cancer. The unsung heroes who help make clinical trials happen for kids are the dedicated clinical research associates, nurses, and support staff.
This $1.1 million supports these necessary roles to ensure more kids get treated on a clinical trial, often their best hope for a cure.
Without your support, these grants would not be possible. Thank you for your generosity and passion to Conquer Kids’ Cancer.
The following institutions were awarded a St. Baldrick’s Foundation Infrastructure award:
Enrollment on a clinical trial is often a child’s best hope for a cure. And every child enrolled on a trial is helping kids in the future to have a better outcome.
Did you know: The St. Baldrick’s Foundation and Children’s Oncology Group have been partners in the fight against childhood cancer since our founding.
Want to know how St. Baldrick’s donors are the saving lives of kids with a common brain tumor? This isn’t just an example of progress – it’s the biggest increase in survival rates many researchers have ever seen from one clinical trial! And that trial was supported by St. Baldrick’s.
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.
