Tiny Dancer Project launches to benefit MSK Kids to Support Pediatric Cancer Research
"On behalf of our 4-year old daughter, and all of the other heroic little cancer fighters out there, we are honored to find and fund cancer therapies that will save more lives", states Gregg Pauletti, Executive Director. Tiny Dancer Project intends to focus on funding therapies that are less toxic and increase the chance for long-term survival, which is why they benefitting the world-renowned doctors and scientists at MSK Kids.
Currently in active treatment, but in remission, their daughter's life-threatening battle with High-Risk Neuroblastoma has energized them to pay forward the compassion and community that they have received since their daughter's diagnosis. "Providing funding to research that will have an immediate impact on the survival of children, as well as raising awareness and providing resources to families impacted by childhood cancer is why we are launching this initiative."
Initially, Tiny Dancer Project will remain dedicated to specific projects with doctors at MSK Kids, but they hope to include doctors and hospitals around the globe who have a dedicated interest in advancing the science of pediatric cancer therapies. "One day we hope that they will never have to use chemotherapy, a cocktail of drugs which is devastating on the bodies of children." Chemotherapy can have a range of side effects from hearing loss to infertility, as well as increased risk for other types of cancer years down the road.
