It's Official!

Here is the latest official word on the collaboration between St. Baldrick's and Stand Up To Cancer:

Over the next four years, The St. Baldrick’s Foundation and Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) will commit a total of $14.5 million to form the SU2C-St. Baldrick’s Pediatric Cancer Dream Team.

This is the first Dream Team focused solely on pediatric cancer research since SU2C's inception in 2008. The pairing of the two organizations brings together two of the world's leading cancer research groups in a unified mission to accelerate the discoveries of new advances for treating pediatric cancer.

"It is through the ongoing efforts of St. Baldrick's volunteers who continue to stand up to cancer, and the more than $32 million they raised this year, that we are able to announce this landmark collaboration," says Kathleen Ruddy, executive director of the St. Baldrick's Foundation. "We are confident that the innovative approach of the Pediatric Cancer Dream Team, along with other St. Baldrick's funded research will help quicken the pace in our ultimate goal to someday find cures for all childhood cancers."

The official word from Peachy Keen HQ? HOPE.

And one word for our hero, Justin? FIGHTER.
