In this issue, there’s an update on a promising leukaemia drug called PR-104, a profile of brain cancer researcher Dr Maria Tsoli and an article about how parents of children with cancer are helping guide our research.
Last, but not least, is a story is about an incredible trek to raise money for our research. Childhood cancer survivor, Nikki Quinn, is trekking Machu Picchu this month. Her goal is to raise $10,000 and she’s been training hard. You can read more or donate here.
