Our mission here at Kate’s Cause is to raise much-needed funds that will apply directly to research for better and less toxic treatment for our children.
Kate’s Cause is thrilled to announce our partnership with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to co-fund a grant to Dr. Christian Hurtz, PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. Our $25,000 contribution is to the grant on studying Cellular Pathways to Enhance Treatment in Ph-like Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Awarded on June 2, 2018 in honor of Kate’s 7th birthday, this will be the first of what we hope will be many.
We’ll share more detailed updates and progress reports from Dr. Hurtz’s research as it becomes available. In the meantime, meet Dr. Hurtz here!
