Thank Goodness It’s Fact Friday!

The Fact Friday detail everyone should remember: childhood cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the United States, but raising funds for research through Cookies for Kids’ Cancer gives families facing this disease the hope they deserve.

Today, we introduce you to Dr. Charles Mullighan, member of the faculty and co-leader of the Hematological Malignancies Program at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of our five partner centers.  Dr. Mullighan has received numerous awards and honors for his cancer research, and is particularly interested in the use of high-resolution, genome-wide approaches to identify genomic aberrations contributing to leukemogenesis and influencing leukemia outcome. Read below to see how funding from Cookies for Kids’ Cancer has supported his research.

As we close this Fact Friday post, we not only want to take a moment to honor all of our Good Cookie doctors but also all of our Good Cookie Dads.  We hope you all have a Happy Father’s Day.
