Your donation today will support the next big Osteosarcoma Grant.
Four years ago, friends from the Osteosarcoma Collaborative and St. Baldrick’s Foundation set out to raise $1.5 million to fund a grant to make a big difference for kids fighting osteosarcoma. For the first time in St. Baldrick’s history, a call went out to the research community for proposals specific to this bone cancer that has seen no real progress in over forty years. That grant went to Dr. Alex Huang at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. It helped launch a Phase 1 clinical trial, fueled research leading to FDA Orphan Drug Designation for two new osteosarcoma treatments and propelled research to develop two additional osteosarcoma clinical trials.
Today the Osteosarcoma Collaborative is teaming up with several well-known pediatric cancer foundations to fund a new $1.5 million "Fight Osteosarcoma Together Super Grants." The goal of this grant is to rapidly translate the research into a clinical trial that will benefit patients within three years. We are proud to support Dr. Patrick Grohar at Children's of Philadelphia who was selected as the recipient of this grant after a thorough scientific review process led by the St. Bladrick's Foundation.
