CURE Commits More Than $1.5 Million in Research and Fellowship Grants

Here at CURE Childhood Cancer, we are committed to finding a cure in our lifetime. The most important way to make this happen is through supporting childhood cancer research initiatives. CURE Childhood Cancer’s Research Initiative has invested more than $1.5 million this year alone to support research aimed at finding a cure.

Executive Director Kristin Connor says, “CURE is extremely pleased to be partnering with outstanding scientists to continue our search for cures and better treatments for children with cancer and to improve the quality of life of childhood cancer survivors. CURE has a 36 year long history of supporting promising research and we are proud to continue that effort.”

This year, CURE is funding two fellowship grants as well as 11 specific research projects focused on the types of children’s cancer most difficult to cure. To read about each of these research projects, click here.

On top of the $1.5 million, The Press On Fund is expected to raise an additional $200,000 to be awarded to promising AML and Neuroblastoma research projects.

We are excited about the research CURE is funding this year and are thankful to all of our supporters for making this research possible. With all of your help, we are one step closer to finding a cure.
