As everyone knows, there is a lot of pioneering research to fight adult cancers, which is wonderful.
But did you know that there is little innovation in the combat against children cancer? Way too little. The statistics are frightening.
As a family we want to make an effort to support the fantastic work that KickCancer does. A running effort.
We will be participating to the RUN TO KICK family race in order to collect funds for this good cause.
By sponsoring our run, you are helping us to reach our goal and you will incentivise us to run even harder!
We have a mission. A beautiful mission. We want to cure every child’s cancer.
Find new treatments, improve existing ones, and kick children’s cancer to send it far, far away forever and may it never come back! We therefore financially support scientific research, and bring together the drive, inspiration and knowledge of everyone involved. From researchers, doctors and parents to politicians and pharmaceutical companies. Only a joint effort can ensure that children with cancer are cured and better cured.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of the funds raised by you will finance innovative research projects selected thanks to the European FIGHT KIDS CANCER initiative.
FIGHT KIDS CANCER is a European call for projects that we launched together with Imaginefor Margo (France) and Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner (Luxembourg).
Our second FIGHT KIDS CANCER call for projects lead to the selection, by independent international experts, of 5 new innovative research projects of European scope for a total amount of 3,45 million euros of which KickCancer will finance 800 000 €. Through these projects, we hope to foster improvements in the knowledge and treatment of the following diseases: B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (clinical trial), ewing's sarcomas (clinical trial), medulloblastomas (translational project), neuroblastomas (2 translational projects).
There is ONE EXTRA project we would love to tell you more about… but we need to raise more funds than initially planned. Are you in to help us reach one million euros to fund this mystery project?
Dear colleagues, I keep my fingers crossed that you will be the fastest team, but even if not great initiative! Best, Frank
