Michelle Fleischhacker's Fundraiser:

A WORLD WITHOUT CANCER

THE STORY:

Although I'm Canadian, Fred's Team holds a very special place in my heart. Recently, a friend of ours travelled to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC with their 8 year old son who had been accepted into a clinical trial for brain stem tumors. He was the 2nd child to undergo the surgery. We learned that the surgery was successful as PET, CT, and MRI scans showed that the radioactive antibody delivered to the tumor was placed and remained where it was intended, and their son did not suffer any toxic effects. Unfortunately, the tumor spread beyond the boundary of the targeted treatment area and in the end it was just too aggressive to contain. Their son passed away yesterday, August 21st, 2012 in the arms of his parents.

Eight years is not enough time in this world -- I hope with the funding Fred's Team raises for more ground breaking research and clinical trials at MSKCC, other parents will have hope for the recovery of their child. Please help make this happen and show your support for this very worthy cause.
