exciting news!

It has been a very exciting week in our world! For those of you who do not follow Ben Towne Foundation on Facebook and Twitter, we wanted to make sure you were in the loop! Many of you saw this article in the New York Times earlier this week.

On Thursday Seattle Children’s announced that a similar first clinical trial from the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research, aimed to treat relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in children has officially opened! This is the beginning of what we hope will be the future for treating all forms of pediatric cancer in a way that leaves children’s minds and bodies unharmed – and your generosity has helped accelerate the timetable for this research. It is hard to believe the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research just opened in August 2011! We are so grateful to Dr. Jensen and his incredible team for their dedication, as well as Seattle Children’s for their bold vision.

Local media organizations shared this great news as well. Take a look…
