Great.com Interviews Rally Foundation About Fighting The Number One Cause Of Disease Death Among US Children Ryan Nurse from Great.com interviewed Rally Foundation as part of their 'Great.com Talks With...' podcast. This series is an antidote to negative news stories that aims to shed light on organizations and experts whose work is making a positive impact on the world. Many people don’t realise that the cancer treatments we offer children were actually designed for grown adults. They are very harsh on developing bodies and two thirds of kids treated for cancer suffer long term side effects as a result of their treatment. Dean Crowe discussed childhood cancer research and finding effective cures and better treatments.  Childhood Cancer Research And A Helping Hand In Times Of Need We all deserve physical and emotional support through periods of ill health. The Rally Foundation for...

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...

Dean’s Letter – December 2021

Dean’s Letter – December 2021

Thank you for caring about kids fighting cancer. It was 16 years ago that I walked to my mailbox and inside was a letter from the IRS saying that the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research had been approved as a 501(c)(3). I remember holding that letter in my hand and thinking that God had way bigger plans than I could ask for or imagine. Today, I stand in amazement at all we have done together. And I say we, because without you, without your hearts, hands and financial support, all that we have accomplished and are accomplishing would not be possible. Thank you! To date, we have given more than $22M, funding more than 400 childhood cancer research projects across the country and worldwide. When I held that letter, I certainly never imagined guiding Rally through a global pandemic. It was a challenging time, but through the unwavering support of donors like you, we were able to...
