                                                                Solving Kids’ Cancer

Today, Scott Kennedy, Executive Director, Solving Kids’ Cancer, and Joe McDonough, Founder and President, The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, presented a check to Duke University Medical Center to bring oncolytic virus therapy to children battling high-grade brain tumors. The adult trial, leveraging the re-engineered polio virus, has shown very promising results and this new pediatric trial gives tangible #hope to children who are desperately seeking new treatment options.

You can make a difference to children with cancer. Your donations directly fund innovative new treatments for children battling cancer today.

my brother’s loving legacy to his son, hazen:

a non-profit

pediatric cancer

research funding and awareness program

so that no other child and family

should ever have to suffer from cancer again.

Day 30 – As we close out the month of September, we want to share our most sincere thanks with all of you who supported our #CCAM campaign. We can’t wait to share the results with you! We also want to thank our friends at Adams Fairacre Farms, Inc. for their support all month long, BGC Charity Day and the beautiful Coco Rocha for an incredible day of fundraising on September 11, and The Ronan Thompson Foundation for allowing us to be part of the incredible Runway Heroes event on September 26th.
