We fund childhood cancer research - cancer cures that kids deserve!

Children’s Oncology Group – “Project: EveryChild”

Children’s Oncology Group (COG) is the world’s largest organization of childhood cancer research experts, all working together to find cures for every type of pediatric cancer. Ninety percent of all kids diagnosed with cancer in the US are treated at one of more than 200 COG member hospitals. Mia’s Dream Foundation is proud to support their program “Project: EveryChild” Initiative to capture the biology, treatment history and outcome of every pediatric cancer patient in the U.S. Tumor tissue and, when possible, parental DNA are be collected and stored in a state-of-the-art biobank at The Research Institute of Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH ( the largest pediatric cancer biospecimen bank in the nation). These biospecimens, along with treatment and outcome information, will be available to thousands of researchers working to develop new therapies for deadly childhood cancers.
