Each year, the lab team hangs strings of lights in the hallways to honor the children who have battled brain cancer under their team’s care. This heartfelt tradition serves as a poignant reminder that behind every scientific experiment, there is a child whose life could be profoundly impacted by their discoveries. The twinkling lights symbolize hope and resilience, encouraging the team to persist in their tireless efforts towards finding cures.
Before the end of the year, we will be hanging 100 tea-light globes from the ceiling in the lab to literally Light up the Lab, each of which will adorn the name of a patient treated by Dr. Mark Souweidane and/or Dr. Jeffrey Greenfield, co-founders of the Children’s Brain Tumor Project Laboratory. We hope to raise $1,000 in honor of each one of those children. Some of whose inspiring stories are featured below.
We want our donors to get to know all of the children for whom we work so hard, and we invite you to visit this site throughout December as new stories are posted each week. All donors who make a year-end contribution will be provided with printable acknowledgement cards that can be given to friends and loved ones in lieu of, or in addition to, gifts. We thank you for honoring our children and supporting our progress.
