Story

On June 13th, 2005, our lives changed forever.  Keaton, who was just 16 months old, was diagnosed with a deadly brain tumor called a medulloblastoma.  Even worse, the tumor spread outside of his brain, all the way down his spine.

We opted for what was an advanced treatment at the time -- high dose chemotherapy followed by lower doses of radiation, all so that we could reduce the amount of damaging radiation.  The protocol was hard on his developing body, but ultimately saved his life.  

But this would not be the only time Keaton would receive a cancer diagnosis. Eleven years after his initial diagnosis, Keaton was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, which was caused by his original treatment. That's why we need better, less toxic treatments that save all kids and save them without the damaging side effects.  And new therapies require research, which is why we help raise money for the Run of Hope Seattle every year.

If you have donated to Team Keaton in the past, your donation has helped fund Tumor Paint, a revolutionary agent made from the venom of a deathstalker scorpion, that helps neurosurgeons see cancerous cells during surgery or important clinical trials being conducted here that are available to children everywhere.

If you donate this year, your donation will fund similar initiatives from the Olson Lab and the exciting immontherapy work being done at Seattle Children's Hopsital Research Institute.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
