We present to you, a visual image of Shane’s tumor cells.

We are grateful for our collaboration with The Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute. Tumor donation and its research is a fundamental part of understanding Shane’s type of cancer.

Dr. Keller has said to me:

“Tumor donations, particular the tumors that defy all
therapy, are the key to developing the right new therapies. Hardly anything could be more important. The RD cell line was made in 1968. That’s a long time on plastic. The same for Rh30, made in 1987.
Yet all therapies developed between 1990 and 2015 used RD and Rh30. It’s just so much better to use contemporary tissues, cell lines, and models… from the hardest to cure RMS.”
