Salud America: Gregory Aune: The Gear Up Against Kids Cancer Bike Ride
Original post: Salud America
“Gregory Aune was 16 when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Aune spent a year enduring grueling treatment, losing over 70 pounds.
But he survived. His experience motivated him to pursue a clinical career and help children with cancer.
Today, Dr. Aune is an assistant professor of pediatric hematology and oncology at the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute (GCCRI) of UT Health San Antonio, on a mission to find new ways to help and heal patients.
That’s why he helped found the Gear Up Against Kids Cancer Bike Ride — to raise awareness of childhood cancer and support the mission of the GCCRI.”
Since 2004, UT Health San Antonio, Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute’s (Greehey CCRI) mission has been to advance scientific knowledge relevant to childhood cancer, contribute to understanding its causes, and accelerate the translation of knowledge into novel therapies. Greehey CCRI strives to have a national and global impact on childhood cancer through the discovery, development, and dissemination of new scientific knowledge. Our mission consists of three key areas — research, clinical, and education.
