Conquer cancer with the Jimmy Fund Walk!

Help me, help them!

Team Kira's Kruisers is a Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk team named for my 16 year old daughter, Kira, who has been battling brain tumors since she was 4 years old. The Boston Marathon Jimmy FUNd Walk is the largest participatory event benefiting the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  

Our team dedicates its funds to the Pediatric Low Grade Astrocytoma (PLGA)program at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's. This program is the world's only multidisciplinary clinical and research program dedicated to pediatric low-grade gliomas. Established in 2007 with support from the PLGA Foundation, the program takes a multifaceted approach to finding more effective, less toxic treatments and a cure for children battling brain tumors, and has become the standard bearer for the research and care of pediatric brain tumors.  This program has contributed to international research efforts that have identified genomic drivers that contribute to growth of pilocytic astrocytoma. Specifically, they have identified genes that are commonly mutated in pilocytic astrocytoma. These findings are guiding clinical trials examining the activity of new drugs specifically for children with pilocytic astrocytoma.

Please help us help kids like Kira!
