The Team Finn Foundation is an active supporter of the clinical research taking place at BC Children’s Hospital. We have worked in partnership with doctors at BC Children’s Hospital to help implement pediatric POG and to make it accessible to kids in British Columbia.
The Team Finn Foundation has also co-funded a grant to assist in developing a personalized approach to detecting circulating DNA in children with solid tumours. The hope is that through this research a test will be developed, using blood samples instead of biopsies, to better identify mutations in tumours and to identify more effective targeted treatments to kill tumours in light of those mutations.
In addition to our support of clinical research at BC Children’s Hospital, Team Finn has also donated to Finn’s Monkey Room Projects at the Hospital. As a tribute to a very special boy, these Monkey Room projects strive to transform the experience of child going through treatment through art and distraction.
