$100k Ewing’s Sarcoma Research Grant – August 2016
As a result of your generous contributions, Noah’s Bandage Project delivered its first research grant to Children’s Mercy Hospital! This grant of $100,000 was personally delivered to Dr. Glen Samuel in August of 2016. Dr. Samuel is conducting research in Ewing’s Sarcoma (the type of cancer that Noah beat), specifically looking at biomarkers in the blood that are generated from the tumor. He categorizes patterns that will help identify the progression or regression of the tumor itself. Once successful, this will help reduce the need for ongoing scans which expose children to harmful radiation impacts. This also helps doctors more closely follow the success of ongoing treatments much faster, resulting in saving more lives! Thank you for your support.
