The St. Baldrick's Foundation is proud to announce that Nina Kadan-Lottick M.D., M.S.P.H., at Yale University, has been named the TeamBrent - St. Baldrick's Scholar in honor of TeamBrent supporters who have rallied together for nearly a decade to bring awareness to the realities of childhood cancer and the need to fund research.
"TeamBrent came about initially because my son, Brent, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma," said Mike McCreesh. What started out as 20 shavees has turned into thousands of supporters coming together to make a difference in the lives of kids fighting cancer. Because of continued progress in the field of pediatric oncology and people who volunteer their time, talent and treasure to help fund this type of cutting-edge research, Brent is now cancer free and living life as a healthy 10-year-old who loves sports and chess.
"This research aims to give children the best quality of life that they can have after fighting cancer, addressing some of the difficult issues they can face as a result of the treatments that saved their lives," said Dr. Kadan-Lottick.
"This is an amazing thing for all of us that represent TeamBrent. Each of the thousands of members who have stepped up to help kids and make a difference can look at what they've done and see tangible results." Mike
