Hyundai Hope on Wheels funds Rhabdomyosarcoma study

We are grateful to the Portland area and national Hyundai dealers who so graciously fuel the Hyundai Hope on Wheels program to fund childhood cancer research across the nation.  Our laboratory yesterday received a generous award of $100,000 to study the response of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma to growth factor inhibitors... and to determine the mechanisms by which such strategies might be improved to prevent relapse and inhibitor resistance.  We are all also very humbled by rhabdomyosarcoma patient, Josh Flanery, who took his time to talk with the group about his own experience with adolescent and young adult cancer.
