Becoming part of the solution

We believe that what is needed is a complete understanding of the cancer cell at a molecular level. What is more, we believe that this understanding, for the first time in human history, is actually possible. There has been a fortunate conjunction of events that holds great promise for this historic search for answers. The map of the human genome has given us an image of relative “normalcy” against which departures can be observed and measured. Advances in technology allow scientists to peer inside the previously mysterious structures and processes of tumor cells and their components in ways never before possible.

Very few of us have escaped the experience of watching someone we love suffer from the disease we call cancer. You probably wanted answers at the time, and now, on behalf of the children who suffer from this disease, you can help pursue those answers by helping the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute as it begins its work.

Your gift can make a difference in the recruiting of the best scientists to work on this problem, in purchasing the finest equipment, and in putting the two together. What is more, your gift will go directly to fund one of the labs, with every dime expended on research.

Why Support Research at Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute?

Researchers at Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute have developed more novel therapies in national trials than any other group in the US. Treatments developed by us are standard of care for high-risk solid tumors across the US, Europe and Asia.
