    The Foundation has already contributed over $2,000,000 to the research and clinical trial of Dr. Mark Souweidane of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the Director of the Weill Cornell Medical College Pediatric Brain and Spine Center. Dr. Souweidane has launched a pioneering FDA-approved clinical trial called convection-enhanced delivery (CED) which is the first of its kind to administer radio immunotherapy to children with an otherwise incurable tumor. As a result of this clinical trial and thanks in part to our Foundation, we now have a handful of DIPG survivors when there once was none. We also support the compelling genetic research of Dr. Oren Becher, the Chief of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital. In addition, we have highly esteemed celebrities on our board who are active members.
