As you kick off your 4th of July weekend, we wanted Fact Friday to have its own BANG. Thanks to your support, in just 6 years, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer granted more than $7 million to kids’ cancer research. All that from Good Cookies! But what does $7 million in grants mean for kids? It means funding 6-dozen research projects – 27 of which are treatments available to children currently battling cancer.

Dr. Shakeel Modak, from one of our partner centers Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, is just one of the many doctors who has received funds from Cookies for Kids’ Cancer for his research. He is a pediatric oncologist who specializes in the treatment of children and young adults with neuroblastoma and other solid tumors, such as desmoplastic small round cell tumors. Dr. Modak recognizes these are challenging cancers to treat and hopes to be able make an impact and improve the lives of people diagnosed with these diseases. Read below for his own words:
