HOW CAN THE AT LEAST KIDS FOUNDATION HELP?
Dr. Philip "Jay" Storm
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Division of Neurosurgery
"Philanthropy is critical to helping cultivate basic research behind the growth and proliferation of brain tumors. At a time when funding from government and other traditional resources has declined so dramatically, we are so grateful for gifts from patient families and others, like At Least Kids, who support our work. A robust
research program is really the only way to translate our discoveries from the laboratory into treatments to help the children we serve."
Dr. Michael Fisher
The Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)
"Gifts like these allow us to explore new ideas that may eventually lead to discoveries that can be put into clinical practice. Research is very expensive and involves a long-term commitment of both families and others who support our work and the Hospital to ensure that the infrastructure is solid. I am deeply touched by the commitment of those, like At Least Kids, who choose to support our work. That support will lead to new learnings each and every day."
