GIVE THEM HOPE.
BE THEIR HERO.
Funding Research for the Cures of Tomorrow
Hope & Heroes bridges the gap between laboratory and clinical research, unlocking new possibilities in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Investment in cutting edge research related to biology, disease origins, and treatment bridges the gap between the laboratory and the clinic, transforming medical discoveries into improved health outcomes for childhood cancer patients everywhere.
Current Hope & Heroes Supported Research:
Precision in Pediatrics
Uses whole-genome analysis to customize treatment for each patient, allowing clinicians to identify the most effective and least invasive options.
Brain and Nervous System Tumor Laboratory
Focuses on understanding the biology of pediatric solid tumors, investigating tumor blood vessel growth, or angiogenesis, as a lens to illuminate the fundamental steps of tumor progression, metastasis, and resistance.
International Initiative for Pediatric Nutrition (IIPAN)
Creates infrastructure and trains clinicians worldwide in order to provide access to the most effective, evidence-based nutritional care for pediatric illnesses in developing countries.
