Why This Is So Important to Our Team:
Our very own Tommy Lake has been fighting hepatoblastoma with the help of the wonderful team at CHOP!
September is pediatric cancer awareness month and what many people don’t know is that only 4% of cancer research dollars are donated to pediatric cancer research.
The cancer Tommy has been fighting, hepatoblastoma, is a rare form of pediatric liver cancer. Only an estimated 100 new cases are seen every year nationally, making research that much more important!
We walk and run in Tommy’s honor to raise money for pediatric cancer research as he continues to fight the good fight!!
Breakthroughs Are Upon Us Every day, CHOP’s Cancer Center team is redefining what a cancer diagnosis means for a child. The center offers the most advanced therapies available anywhere in the world, including cutting-edge clinical trials that reprogram the body’s own immune system to fight cancer. CHOP’s Center for Childhood Cancer Research is one of the most distinguished research programs in the nation.
