Raise money for Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-tdi.org)
“Childhood cancer is a global health issue touching the lives of at least 300,000 children each year according to WHO estimates, but likely as many as 400,000 children with a quarter of these children going undiagnosed in developing countries. Even for children in nations with state of the art care, 1 in 5 children will not survive. Pharmaceutical companies and their internal champions now more than ever are reaching past the new regulatory requires to test adult cancer drugs for effectiveness in children; however, while US FDA approvals for adult cancer number on average 12 or more each year – for children, effective drugs for pediatric cancer have only been approved 8 times in the last 42 years.

The 2019 fundraising support of In-House Community and their clients super-charged childhood cancer research at the Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-tdi.org), and this year promises to make an even bigger impact. Highlights of supported work at cc-TDI this past year includes a machine learning project to help improve the diagnosis of children with cancer in developing countries, and developed ones. This project was piloted with the Intel spinout OmicsAutomation.com, and complemented by design of a pocket microscope slide scanner by a capstone engineering team at the University of Idaho. The project is hoped to move to the IBM World Community Grid Smash Childhood Cancer Project, led by Dr. Godfrey Chan (Hong Kong University), and for which cc-TDI is a major participant. This project is a key example of how it takes a community to address a question that may not have a profit margin, but has priceless impact for children and affected families. In-House Community leads the way.”
