So, it was on my bed during one of my final rounds of chemotherapy in Asheville that I decided to start a foundation. I wanted to discover a method to fund specific research based on finding targeted, less toxic treatments that would benefit those who were too often overlooked and underserved - the young. Truth be told, childhood/young adult cancer is nasty, it looks bad, it smells bad, and it’s unfair.
The NIH gives a mere 4% of it’s cancer budget to childhood cancer. Foundations like The Carson Sarcoma Foundation will and must try to fill the gaps and utilize these advancements to help some of the cancers that effect more individuals.
