The Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-TDI), under the direction of Dr. Charles Keller, is about to launch a crowdfunding project for discovering new drugs to stop metastasis in rhabdomyosarcoma… using a quail egg assay.

The goal is to raise enough funds for the purchase of a Zeiss Stereo Microscope. This microscope will empower Dr. Keller and his team to observe sarcoma progression using tumors taken from our genetically-engineered mouse models.  These mouse models are for rhabdomyosarcoma and related soft tissue sarcomas.

The Go4TheGoal Foundation has created a challenge for a 1:1 match on this crowdfunding project. All contributions will be matched 1:1 by the Go4TheGoal foundation (our goal is $25k to match $25k from Go4TheGoal).

The launch will be this Sunday, May 15th, 2016 at 12pm EST.

The crowdfunding website is:  https://www.consano.org/projects/84-microscope-to-study-the-process-of-rhabdomyosarcoma-metastasis.

Please give what you can.  Everything you give will be doubled by Go4TheGoal Foundation.

Full disclosure: I am a founding director of cc-TDI.
