We awarded two more brain tumor research grants: the first grant is the 3rd year of a special project by Dr Eric Wong which examines the relationship between field strength at the tumor site and outcome. This can eventually result in better ways to use Tumor Treating Fields, and figure out why it works so good with some people and not others.
The second grant is a collaboration between the Musella Foundation and Dragon Master's Foundation for a project by Dr. Seyed Ali Nabavizadeh which looks at better ways of using Pet and MRI scanning to evaluate pediatric brain tumors. The currently used methods on adults do not translate well to the pediatric tumors, especially those of the brainstem and midline structures.
We thank the donors who allowed us to award these important grants. Some of the funding came from our National Walk To End Brain Tumors, and some came from memorial donations, as well as donations to our organization.
