The Childhood Cancer Project
Research is the key. We are so grateful for our partnership and that Shane’s tumors cells have assisted in pushing forward a clinical trial.
It’s honestly the best gift we ever gave and one we never had to think twice about.
The Childhood Cancer Project is proud to support the work of Dr. Charles Keller and The Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute’s Legacy Autopsy program.
The Legacy Autopsy was created to enable parents of children with cancer to donate tumor tissue to research. The cc-TDI team and The Childhood Cancer Project believe that this kind of research will be field-changing, especially for rare childhood cancers for which cell lines and mouse models do not exist, and for which functional studies have never before been performed.
“The decision to donate our son’s tumors to research continues to give us hope. It allows us to fight for our son and so many others until a cure is found.”
— Shane’s parents
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported The Childhood Cancer Project, without you we couldn’t support so many families and the cc-TDI Legacy Autopsy Program.
