Beat Childhood Cancer
Beat Childhood Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization funding novel research and innovative clinical trials utilizing precision medicine to target solid tumor cancers in children. The organization's goal is to create viable treatment options for kids TODAY to increase survival and decrease toxicity.
Since 2019, Love Your Melon has been supporting the efforts of Beat Childhood Cancer to bring the drug DFMO through clinical trials to FDA approval. Neuroblastoma has a high rate of reoccurrence and DFMO is aimed to keep kids disease-free allowing them to survive and thrive. We are proud to support this initiative and the network of hospitals bringing less toxic therapies to every child, everywhere.
We are proud to have supported Beat Childhood Cancer with a total of $538,000 in past years. At the end of 2021, we gave an additional $100,501 to continue to fund and cover the cost of the drug through its clinical trials to FDA approval. Proceeds from the drug will go back into funding cutting-edge research through the Beat Childhood Cancer Foundation.
