Maggie's Mission funds an important research project led by Memorial Sloan Kettering on Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors - the cancer that took Maggie's life.
To date, Maggie's Mission has donated over $200,000 to fund a research project started by Maggie's Oncologist - Dr. Srikanth Reddy Ambati M.D. at Memorial Sloan Kettering and currently being overseen by Dr. Kentsis. This research utilizes groundbreaking innovations to help find a cure for Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors. Maggie's Missions goal is to fully fund this project. The initial project cost is estimated to be $281,423.
Unfortunately there is no profit motive for Big Pharma to find a cure for such a rare cancer so children are dependent on research grants funded primarily by grassroots fund-raising efforts and foundations like Maggie's Mission. After funding this, Maggie's Mission will continue to seek ways to fund research to find a cure for not only Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors but other rare childhood cancers as well.
