National Pediatric Cancer Foundation
The National Pediatric Cancer Society (NPCF) is an organization dedicated to funding research to find less toxic, and more targeted therapies to eliminate childhood cancer. Through a collaborative research network with top oncologists and researchers across the country, NPCF is accelerating the speed at which treatments can be discovered and thus improving the outcomes of childhood cancers.
Love Your Melon is proud to support the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation this year to support research studies of the top oncologists and researchers. Our funding will specifically be supporting research related to high-grade sarcomas, such as Ewing sarcoma, Osteosarcoma, and rhabdomyosarcoma, and reducing the changes of recurrence. NPCF researchers will be conducting clinical trials utilizing newly developed blood based biomarkers, which can better predict recurrence of disease when a patient has reached remission and can make a future impact in how sarcomas are treated.
