Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center: Community Events

Smash Kids Cancer

My name is Elizabeth Chin. In honor of my younger brother Connor and to celebrate him, I am leading a fundraiser to raise money to benefit Pediatric Cancer Research at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Connor was diagnosed with bone cancer two and half years ago. He was 11 years old. He was treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering, but the cancer came back after 18 months. Instead of conventional chemotherapy the second time around, Connor was very fortunate to have participated in a clinical trial immunotherapy which he completed last July. This drug was developed by scientists in Memorial Sloan Kettering. Although the journey was rough, we are grateful to MSK for saving my brother's life. Connor is doing great now and enjoying life as an 8th grader.

Pediatric cancer research is extremely underfunded in this country. Only 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s research budget is dedicated to pediatric cancers, which is why donations are critical to making progress possible.

Thank you for your support!
