• RTW research fund established for pediatric survivors at Penn
"The Running Through Walls Cancer Survivorship Research Fund provides critical support to help expand the Living Well After Childhood Cancer Program to fund clinical research, dedicated staff, and complimentary services such as nutritional and psychosocial counseling to help improve the quality of life for each adult survivor of childhood cancer."
• Dr. Anna T. Meadows, RTW Chief Medical Advisor.
"Twenty five years ago everyone believed that having a child with the diagnosis of cancer was the worst thing that could happen to a family, and that is still true. Except now there are many young adults who have been cured of cancer as children, and medical science is continuing to work to improve the odds for every child and adolescent who has to deal with the necessary treatment. Pediatric oncologists are working to make the lives of all young adults who have survived cancer long and fruitful, and this Foundation, Running through Walls, INC. will provide critical resources to help us do that"
