$50,000 Research Gift to the Ewing's Sarcoma Research  Fund at Seattle Children's Hospital

The Nick Teddy Foundation is pleased to announce a $50,000 research gift to the Ewing’s Sarcoma Research Fund at Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research at Seattle Children’s Hospital.


We were also able to qualify for a Seattle Children’s research match of $50,000 comprised of funds from the Jack R. MacDonald Trust and many generous donors to the Research Discovery Fund, which supports all types of pediatric medical research at Seattle Children’s Research Division


Principal Investigator Beth Lawlor, MD tells us these funds will allow her lab to accelerate 2 of its most translational and exciting projects NOW, rather than waiting for another year (or more!) for new funding from the NIH. 


Two of Dr. Lawlor’s senior postdoctoral fellows, Shireen Ganapathi MD and Emma Wrenn PhD, will be leading these projects. The first study will test new drug combinations that the lab hopes will prevent and kill metastatic and recurrent Ewing’s tumors. Additionally, this donation will be used towards a project aimed at identifying the biologic programs that drive Ewing sarcoma metastasis using digital spatial profiling—a state of the art technology—in both lab animal models and patient tumors. 


To our donors, contributors, and volunteers: thank you, thank you so very much for your steadfast support over the years. Your donations have made it possible for us to fund this research, and we are excited more than you know to enable these projects to advance ahead of expectation.

Thank you!!

Celebrating the courageous fight of Nick Strub

Our mission: to raise funds for research and treatment of Ewing's sarcoma, to provide support to  patients and their families in the Quad Cities area, and to promote awareness and education.
