A Novel Treatment for Children with Anaplastic Wilms’ Tumor

We propose to study anaplasia in Wilms’ tumor at a preclinical level to discover why anaplastic disease tends to be resistant to standard therapies and to predict a rational drug combination which might be more effective and less toxic for these children.

The DIPG Tumor Cell Hotel

Fully funded by Storm the Heavens Foundation in memory of Philomena. To date $161,044 has been donated with another $161,044 of funding coming in 2019. Diffuse

Big Data Analytics of a massive drug screen by Cell of Origin

We have partnered with a major pharmaceutical company to conduct an unprecedented screen of more than 640,000 compounds that, when combined, could offer new treatments for pediatric cancers that haven’t seen progress in decades such as: Rhabodmyosarcoma, Neuroblastoma, DIPG, ETMR, Wilms’ tumor and Osteosarcoma

The “Alexa” Project

Alexa and children like her deserve a treatment regiment as aggressive as the cancer they are fighting. They are our inspirations – our heroes! The goal of The Alexa Project is to find new treatments to move towards clinical trials for all children affected with the neurofibromatosis-1 (NF1) associated brain tumors called juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma (JPA).
