Ben Towne Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Programs
Because Ben Towne Foundation operational costs are fully supported, 100% of donor contributions are invested in groundbreaking research at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer at Seattle Children's Research Institute. From research will come cures.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Ben Towne Foundation has invested $2.785M in cutting edge research accomplished at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research since inception in 2010. The Center's first clinical trial for relapsed leukemia was approved by the FDA in September 2012 and is currently open for patient enrollment. Because only 3% of funding from the National Cancer Institute is allocated for anything to do with pediatric cancer, private philanthropy is essential to achieving cures for childhood cancers!
