Donors and a few leading institutions, including The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of California at San Francisco, have created consortiums that share information between scientists and encourage collaboration between specialists (immunology, oncology, neurosurgery and radiology). With their leadership, more hospitals are jumping on, and sharing data. Yes, this is "Big Data" for those of you interested in technology.And, this enables Personalized Treatments, aka Precision Medicine.
Private funding is required to fund these new trials and consortiums. That's where we you come in. It's time for the Parkway Run. We want to raise more than $100,000 again this year.
Eight months ago, Naya passed away. Her absence is felt deeply in our hearts every day. I miss her laughter, and love of simple things - from making crafts, to swimming, playing with the dogs and making dinner with Hank. Naya's absence is the driving force behind our efforts to find cures for childhood cancer. That was her only wish, and we're committed to making it real. We love you Naya.
