May is Cancer Research Month

MONTHLY news & updates – May 2019
May is National Cancer Research Month and Oncology Nursing Month! We extend our deepest appreciation to oncology nurses for the important roles they play in the lives of all cancer warriors.
With less than 4% of government funding dedicated to childhood cancer research, the impact on kids and doctors is visible. The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation is committed to funding leading edge research so that every child can have the hope of a cancer free future.
This month, we’ll be sharing what PCRF is doing to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer, the importance of research and the promising future ahead.
Behind the Science Q & A with
Dr. Lingling Chen
Dr. Chen is tackling the most common soft tissue tumor in children, Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS). She tells us more about her role in helping to ensure all children have a chance at a long, healthy future.
“Only through scientific research can we move the field forward and develop new cures.”
