Where the money goes

Researchers at the University of California San Francisco San Benioff Children’s Hospital have discovered an innovative way to see if some patients respond to chemotherapy before treatment begins.

As a result of a TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation Grant awarded in 2013, the research team identified when specific biomarkers are present and a specific drug is administered together, leukemia cells are eliminated while barely effecting normal cells.  These findings are going to be used as front line treatment for pediatric patients with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

TeamConnor is proud to be the grantor of this program that’s achieving remarkable results!
