Funding pediatric cancer research with every step


“Right now, that means doing everything within my power to promote the discovery of effective treatments for her,” Sarah said.

The biggest obstacle to pediatric cancer research, Sarah Hamilton noted, is a lack of funding. While any and all donations are precious, she dreams of partnering with a large corporation or lottery winner to fuel the cancer research.

“I’d love to get to a million dollars,” she said.

All funds raised by Team Chickaroo support PLGA research at Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

“In order for research to happen, it falls upon our friends and family to fund it ... Our goal is to keep funding research as long as we have to,” she said.
