We are grateful to all the families across the world that contributed to the laboratory patient wall at OHSU. These families, touched by cancer, remind us not only of why innovation and time are of the essence, but also that cancer does not define these families, and there is childhood to return to once cancer is a uniformly curable condition.
The generous employees of Planar made possible the digital presentations of more than 300 family pictures. Most of the credit in designing and implementing the wall goes to lab member, Jen Alabran, whose scientific expertise is matched only by her compassion for children with cancer.
We look forward to the day of Giving Back Childhood to all children touched by cancer.
