The Pediatric Cancer Dream Team’s goal is to develop new immunotherapy treatments for high-risk childhood cancers. Already, children who had no other hope have survived due to this research.
The innovative new treatments being developed by the team are helping to reduce side effects, increase survival rates, and improve the quality of life for survivors. Most importantly, these advancements are driving the discovery of new therapies for solid tumors, including some brain cancers that almost no child survives today.
The Dream Team’s work has been described by experts as “lightning in a bottle.” Here are just a few of their accomplishments:
This collaboration began in 2013 with a 4-year $14.5 million grant co-funded by St. Baldrick's and Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C). In 2017, the St. Baldrick's Foundation awarded a second grant to continue this work, with co-funding from the member institutions and administrative support from SU2C. Donations to this fund will continue the team's life-saving research.
Please donate now and help conquer childhood cancers.
Donations given to the Pediatric Cancer Dream Team go directly to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fund the Pediatric Cancer Dream Team. The Foundation is guided by a Scientific Advisory Committee, comprised of leading experts in the childhood cancer community, to ensure that every dollar makes the greatest impact for kids with cancer.
These people make us smile - they’re the doers and money-raisers on behalf of the Dream Team. They’re shaving their heads, hosting events, starting fundraisers, and more to make childhood cancer research possible.
