Project Description: 

From Joseph L. Lasky III, M.D. at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA:

The grant from Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation is allowing our research to proceed on how to better target brain tumors in children using the immune system. This is urgently needed since current therapies cause so much damage to normal brains and organs. This support from the Foundation is truly invaluable and speeding the process towards finding a cure for children's cancer, while preserving the memory of a beautiful little girl.
