Founder Bob Martin reports on our mission-critical progress toward breakthroughs for America’s #1 killer of children by disease, brain tumors. Each moment that goes by is another that inflicts pain and suffering on children and families forced to deal with this horrific disease. Enough is enough.
HELP US END DEATHS DUE TO CHILDHOOD BRAIN TUMORS
THE DESTRUCTIVE IMPACT OF BRAIN TUMORS
Most deadly forms of childhood cancers — the leading cause of death by disease among children in the United States.
A form of brain cancer took the life of Foundation Founder Robert Martin’s granddaughter Clara at just 6 years of age in 2017. Each year more than 28,000 Americans are diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Adult cures won’t work for children. The biology and pathology of children is not the same as adults and neither are their brain tumors. A cure for adults is not a cure for children.
Not ONE drug has been developed specifically to treat pediatric brain tumors.
Bridge To A Cure is fixated on the eradication of childhood brain tumors.
The best, brilliant minds are working on cures for brain tumors: not one drug has been developed.
It’s because these great minds don’t have access to the critical data essential to discovery. We are working to remove the barriers that block access to this data across the entire data ecosystem:
GOAL: ACCESSIBLE DATA IN REAL-TIME
Building Bridges To Cures Through Strategic Alliances
Identify what needs to be collected and in what format
Data Storage Create efficient databases formatted to process meaningful insight
Data Access Provide easy, real-time access to facilitate analysis and discovery
Research Funding: St. Baldrick’s Foundation – Member, Board of Directors
Define & unify terminology
Model for open science
Facilitator for national database
Allied Partner, Fundraiser
Executive Council Member
Help us turn the tide this Brain Tumor Month and open up real-time, collaborative access to the data that leads to cures.
