Raise $500,000 to help push the frontiers of research in discovering cure for high-risk pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with NUP/NSD and related genetic mutations.
Our mission is to team up with other parents whose child suffered or suffers from AML, increase public awareness, and raise funds with your help to direct toward supporting research in finding cure for pediatric AML caused by rare genetic mutations, such as NUP/NSD types. Please help us in our efforts by contributing and bringing this fundraiser to the attention of your friends and family, charitable foundations, and philanthropy groups.
Bone marrow transplantation is often done for pediatric AML patients when the existing chemo- and radiation therapy do not cure the decease. This also means that possible cancer relapse after BMT may have devastating consequences. While tremendous progress has been made over the past few decades in curing AML, there remain various genetic mutations leading to high-risk leukemia for which no cure exists. Rare forms of cancer, such as pediatric AML with NUP/NSD genetic mutations, get less attention and priority in developing cure. We want to contribute to help push this frontier and accelerate the discovery of cure.
All the funds will be directed to finding effective treatment and cure for pediatric AML caused by rare NUP/NSD type and closely related mutations which go in tandem with NUP/NSD. This research will be conducted in Dr. Soheil Meshinchi’s group at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, a renowned institution for cancer cure and bone marrow transplantation development. Fred Hutch works in close collaboration with Seattle Children’s Hospital, SCCA and the University of Washington. More information about Dr. Meshinchi’s group can be found here: https://www.fredhutch.org/en/faculty-lab-directory/meshinchi-soheil.html
Please help us help children suffering from high-risk AML. Your contribution will accelerate the development of cure!
Thank you and God bless you all,
