Anaplastic Wilms' Tumor Research Grant to Commemorate Harper's 2nd Angelversary

December 30th marks the 2nd Angelversary of our namesake, Harper.

It is fitting that today also marks a continuation of our efforts to share hope through the funding of additional research aimed at finding new and improved treatments for Anaplastic Wilms' Tumor (Harper's diagnosis).

Hope From Harper is announcing the award of a $5,000 grant to the Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute to support a research study titled "A More Effective and Less Toxic Treatment Strategy for Anaplastic Wilms' Tumor" - involving Andy Woods.

Andy is a Wilms' patient parent turned cancer researcher who is bravely pursuing a change in career to enter the childhood cancer research world. We were able to provide Andy a smaller grant earlier this year and are thrilled to continue our support of Andy's research at the cc-TDI with this larger and even more impactful grant.

Join us in remembering those angels gone too soon. And THANK YOU for your ongoing support of our efforts to help in finding a cure. #sharehope
