Beat Childhood Cancer
Beat Childhood Cancer is a parent-founded and parent-led nonprofit focused on beating childhood cancer. They've helped build an international consortium of nearly 50 children's hospitals and research institutions, to design and rapidly enroll kids on bold clinical trials, creating options.
Among other treatments, Beat Childhood Cancer is driving clinical trials for the drug DFMO. Our hope is that DFMO stops kids from relapsing - a huge win - since relapsed neuroblastoma cases historically have a very poor prognosis.
In 2020, Love Your Melon gifted Beat Childhood Cancer $200,000 to continue to fund and cover the cost of the drug through it's clinical trials as it nears FDA approval. Proceeds from the drug will go back into funding cutting-edge research through the Beat Childhood Cancer Foundation.
