Our goal is to make each child’s cancer journey shorter and less painful, and to decrease the number of negative treatment side effects by finding kidsize cures for cancer. We work with the following research organizations to select specific programs and trials within their general umbrella.
Strong Against Cancer supports researchers at Seattle Children’s Hospital in their quest to find cures for childhood cancers using immunotherapy, which stimulates the patient’s own immune system to fight disease. Clinical trials to treat patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia have already shown success and propelled clinical trials for other types of cancer. All G1ve A Buck funds donated to Strong Against Cancer benefit these immunotherapy trials, with the hope of reducing treatment to weeks instead of years, and to eliminate the need for treatments with serious side effects, like chemotherapy.
