NEW C17 GRANT COMPETITION —The 100% Fund. Watch for a call for applications in the areas of infant ALL, rhabdomyosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma (click to read more!)
We are thrilled to announce a new C17 grant competition that will be run in addition to our regular C17 Operating Grant completion. Watch for a call for Letters of Intent* this month!
Nearly one in five children diagnosed with cancer will not survive. For children with rare and hard to treat cancers, the odds can be far worse.
The 100% Fund has been created to challenge these odds. In recognition of its 30th anniversary, Childhood Cancer Canada (CCC) is proud to partner with organizations with a shared passion to help fund research for children who do not, yet, have their cure. The list is growing, but confirmed organizations as of September 12th are:
- Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation
- Fight Like Mason Foundation
- Ewing Cancer Foundation of Canada
- Team Naomi
- Team Finn
- … watch for additional partners!
By building on new and exciting research initiatives in Canada and around the world, The 100% Fund (www.the100pfund.ca) will pave the way for collaborative research into cutting-edge therapies for tumours that have not responded to currently available treatments.
CCC will partner with C17 Council and its C17 Research Network to administer the grants. As a national research organization representing leading pediatric oncology programs across Canada, the experts at the C17 know the priorities of children and their families that have been impacted by childhood cancer.
* Applications will include a full letter of intent with a 3 page research proposal. Successful LOI will advance to the full grant application stage. Applicants not funded in the funding round currently in progress will be able to submit to this upcoming competition.
