Please note that the clinical trials which we have discussed in this blog are not limited to clinical cancer trials for adults. The Clinical Trials Office of teh Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center, through its partnership with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin (“CHW”), also conducts ground-breaking pediatric clinical trials.
CHW is the only hospital in the state designated as a Phase I Center by Children’s Oncology Group and is one of only 21 such centers nationwide. Because of its standing, children treated at CHW have access to even additional clinical research trials exploring new therapies for childhood cancer.
Funding, however, is needed for those and other clinical cancer trials. With the decline in federal funding for cancer research, donations to the Clinical Trials Office at the MCW Cancer Center take on added importance and increased value. With that in mind, please plan on attending our dinner on June 26, 2013 and/or consider making a donation to The Triumph Fund – and hence to the Clinical Trials Office at the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center.
