The Hood-to-Coast Relay 2019 quickly approaches (August 23-24) and for this special event we are hearing from the MaxCure Foundation Team and beneficiary, the Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-TDI). Jonathan Agin, Executive Director of the MaxCure Foundation joins us in the first segment, giving background to the childhood cancer awareness movement and the urgent need for greater funding of research activity into childhood cancers.

Brian Jones, ultra-distance runner activist for children with cancer, and founder of the Run for the White House phenomenon on Facebook, leads the MaxCure Team in its quest to raise funds for a special project for pediatric AML(acute myeloid leukemia) at cc-TDI, a non-profit biotech in Beaverton OR specializing in finding viable treatments for pediatric cancers of all kinds. Scientific Director Dr. Charles Keller tells us about the project and also the involvement of an 8th grade science class with the Institute in this special venture with MaxCure Foundation and cc-TDI.
