As a scientist working in the field of cancer research I’ve dedicated my life to finding new solutions for patients. My lab is located within the CHEO Research Institute and my goal is to change the way we treat children with cancer.
New and emerging treatments, called immunotherapies, are showing great promise in treating various adult cancers. They do not have the debilitating side effects seen with chemotherapy and radiation. My group is working towards applying these promising immune-based treatments for kids’ cancers.
You may not realize how important it is to have a stable lab that can focus on finding that next discovery. It is because of donors like you that labs like mine can keep scientists working towards a brighter future, right here at CHEO. We use your dollars to show different levels of government and large healthcare companies that the work is supported by a capable team that can produce results. That makes our community not only a partner in our work, but also supports the foundation that it is built on.
I’m sure you agree that finding ways to treat fragile young patients as gently and effectively as possible is extremely important, so please give as generously as you can. This work is something that we can all be proud of, because when that next discovery happens we will know we did it together, as a community.
