So, why is funding research for ultra-rare childhood cancers so important?
Only £3 in every £100 spent on cancer research goes to childhood cancers. Treatment options, cure rates and research for paediatric chordoma fall well beneath other childhood cancers.
When we set up the DBW Charity as a legacy to our little boy, we felt passionately about funding specific projects to help progress chordoma research and improve the chances of survival for other children and their families.
To discover what research has been undertaken from our donation please click the year below:
2019 – Funding in-depth genomic molecular characterisation of two paediatric chordoma cell lines and PDX models.
2018 – Funding the study into the genetic, epigenetic and transcriptomic changes found in the chordoma’s of children and adults.
The Drew Barker-Wright Charity continues to raise funds to support this ongoing project. It is only with your help and support that such research can continue. Together, it’s the only way
