One Mission, 51 Childhood Cancer Researchers, $3.4 Million in Grants

Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research Awards $3.4 Million in Grants This year, 51 researchers from 31 institutions across the country and worldwide will receive a total of $3.4 million in grants from Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. “Rally Foundation has now awarded $25.4 million in grants for childhood cancer research since we started in 2005,” says Dean Crowe, Founder and CEO. “From the beginning, our mission has been to fund the best research wherever it may be to help find better childhood cancer treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures.” Rally grants are awarded based on a competitive dual peer-review process conducted by Rally’s Medical Advisory Board, which is made up of 60 leading childhood cancer experts. These grants fund all levels of research, from science at the bench to translational, and they include second- and...

Pediatric Cancer Dad Discovers a Promising Novel Approach to Wilms’ Tumors

Pediatric Cancer Dad Discovers a Promising Novel Approach to Wilms’ Tumors

Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research (Rally) likes funding outside-the-box ideas and, at times, funding outside-of-the-box researchers: those who we normally not consider as a scientific researcher. Rally is thrilled to share recent developments from an outside-the-box researcher and his study of Wilms’ Tumor. The study emerges from the Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-TDI) in Beaverton, Oregon, in collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Rally-funded researcher Andy Woods leads the study published in Pediatric Blood & Cancer (link Pediatric Blood & Cancer). But first, who is this outside-of-the-box researcher Andy Woods? Andy Woods is a college-educated stone and tile mason from Montana. He is also a Dad. A dad who heard the devasting words, “Your child has cancer.” When his daughter, Stellablue, was four years old, she was...

What are Oncolytic Viruses?

What are Oncolytic Viruses?

A key part of Rally’s mission is to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects, and for almost a decade. Rally has invested for almost a decade in oncolytic virus treatments. A promising, cutting-edge, targeted immunotherapy. Oncolytic viruses are genetically modified viruses or naturally occurring viruses that are reprogrammed to selectively replicate in cancer cells killing the cancer without damaging normal cells. Pretty cool. Josh Bernstock, M.D., Ph.D., shares, “Oncolytic virotherapy is a rapidly progressing field in oncology that uses oncolytic viruses to selectively infect cancer cells and cause an antitumor response through direct destruction of the tumor and stimulation of the immune system.” “This direct targeting of tumor cells is efficacious and non-toxic. In the article below we highlight critical components of the immune microenvironment of brain tumors. In...

One step at a time, one prayer at a time

One step at a time, one prayer at a time

Normal is defined as conforming to a standard; usual, typical or expected. My name is Sarah Gossling and I am one of Rally Kid Grant’s older sisters. Almost eight years ago, on June 18, 2014, my brother was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma. My world was shattered. I was about to go into third grade when Grant was diagnosed, and I can remember trying to keep any bit of the normalcy that I had before I learned the word cancer. Before Grant was diagnosed, we were your average family. Four kids (and one addition later on), a whole lot of crazy, and not a care in the world. We loved traveling and going on adventures. We loved to swim together, play together and drive mom and dad crazy. If you caught us on a good day and the house was clean, it wouldn't be long before my brothers Grant and James were making messes. We were just kids being kids. Once Grant was diagnosed, it was harder to...
