Precision Medicine

We believe Precision Medicine is a game changer for children with cancer. That’s why we have committed more than $5 million to programs at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and to the Target Pediatric AML project.

Precision Medicine is a game changer

Individualized treatment is the path to beating childhood cancer.

How does it work?

1

All patients are treated with a standard protocol proven effective for their cancer.

2

Those that don’t respond to standard treatments undergo genetic testing on cancerous tissue.

3

Individualized treatments bulls-eye the mutated cells identified through the genetic testing and work to destroy them.

What we hope to accomplish

Precision medicine offers hope to children who need it. Where traditional cancer treatment has failed and treatment options are limited at best, precision medicine offers a new opportunity. It offers hope for a cure. In time, we believe this individualized approach to cancer treatment will become the standard of care for all children with cancer, saving lives and preserving lifetimes by minimizing the effects of today’s highly toxic therapies.

How you can help

Precision medicine offers one of the best available opportunities to advance the fight against pediatric cancer. It costs $5000 to sequence the genes of one child who has run out of treatment options.

Your gift of any amount will help us further the precision medicine program at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and other leading research institutions across the country.
