We had a VIP visitor on Friday, Josh. Josh's life has by chance been touched by Ewing's sarcoma and he is now a survivor. Josh told his story in his own words for our StoryCorp project with the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation: to hear his interview, or his mother April's perspective via her interview, click here.
We appreciate patients stopping by the lab, and the accountability that this brings. Josh's Dad gives the universal perspective, "Every parent around the world wants one simple thing…to see their kids grow up." It's our intention to find those new treatments that Give Back Childhood.

We are looking for a volunteer technical writer from the community to co-author a scientific paper on childhood cancer research from results already compiled. This endeavor is an experiments of sorts to see whether we can begin to blend the community with academics to create a seamless and efficient way of moving towards new treatments for childhood cancers. If you have time and interest, please contact Charles at keller (at) ohsu.edu. with thanks, the Keller Lab team.
