Thank you to Hyundai Hope On Wheels and Austin-area Hyundai dealers for the $250,000 for childhood cancer research grant awarded to the Children’s Blood & Cancer Center at Dell Children’s.

The grant funds will support the collaborative work of a team led by Dr. Philip E. Neff and Dell Pediatric Research Institute that will investigate the molecular changes in cancer cell metabolism in response to medications. Understanding these changes could predict outcomes and allow for optimized care and personalized chemotherapy treatments.

Following a check presentation ceremony patient’s made their mark with hand prints on canvases as well as the doctors’ white coats. Click here for more photos of this childhood cancer awareness event.
