We urgently need to find new therapies for Medulloblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood brain cancer. Too many children who develop the disease die and survivors may suffer severe health problems for the rest of their lives. We have identified a dozen drugs that show potential promise for treatment of this cancer. We are now in a position to test these in a laboratory setting with the aim of taking the most effective drug into a clinical setting within the next two years. We need your support to accelerate our research for a better, kinder treatment for this devastating childhood brain cancer.
