Our thanks to the Ethan Jostad Foundation

We are grateful to partner with the Ethan Jostad Foundation for Childhood Cancer in the search for treatments of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma.  This foundation has both patient/family assistance and research as the center of their mission.  We are thankful for the gift of $11,400 that supports the preclinical studies of a specific new agent potentially capable of stopping tumor cell spreading (metastasis).  These studies will specifically employ our genetically-engineered mouse model of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma.  We are honored to be part of Ethan's rememberance.
