Your Donation At Work
Children's Cancer Research Fund invests in the brightest scientists whose ideas are making the greatest impact for children with cancer.
Each dollar donated helps researchers secure $18 of additional funding from the government and other sources. Your support at Time to Fly provides hope for discovering a world without childhood cancer. Together, we are changing the way childhood cancer is treated worldwide.
Here are some of the recent discoveries that donations from supporters like you have made possible:
- A new clinical trial has opened for osteosarcoma! Researchers have identified a genetic biomarker called SEMA4D, which helps osteosarcoma develop. Since this discovery, researchers have found a way to use an existing drug to destroy the cancer.
- Researchers have discovered a protein called CD2000 that interferes with a potentially lifesaving brain tumor vaccine. They have since found a way to turn off the protein!
- Researchers are developing and testing "on" and "off" switches of a special immune system cell, called a T cell, for children with leukemia. This will allow the cell to target cancer without compromising the child's immune system.
Join us at Time to Fly to support other groundbreaking research happening that will provide better, safer treatments for children with cancer.
