About Our Organization
Miles for Hope is dedicated to funding brain tumor research, to increase awareness and to provide patient support, including travel assistance. Through our work, we intend on finding not only treatments that provide a better quality of life for those suffering with brain tumor, but to find a cure for it.
(Current Project We Are Funding:
We are currently expanding a brain tumor vaccine trial to include Grade II brain tumor patients as well as pediatric Patients.
The brain tumor vaccine is designed to trigger the immune system to kill off any residual tumor cells remaining from surgery and chemo. The results of the initial trials have been amazing, and have extended the survival rate of this disease by more than 3 times the normal survival rate!
Our goal is to raise $ 130,000 by the end of 2011 to open this trial. With your support we can reach our goal and provide hope to these patients.
