Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation was invited to a 100+ person private event to honor people and organizations that provide donations above a certain level to Lucile Packards Children’s Hospital through the Children’s Circle of Care.
We were more than fortunate to personally meet and listen to the research work of Dr Crystal MacKall who is considered a “trail blazer” for her research in immunotherapy. Stanford recruited her this year from the National Cancer Institute to lead progressive work in cancer treatments. What an honor to meet this incredibly personable woman who is also part of the 5 person “Dream Team” for Stand up to Cancer. Doctor MacKall was energized, demonstrated so much passion for her work, and is so eager to start implementing incredible medical trial at LPCH in 2017!
Amongst this incredible group of generous donors, included oncology research doctors and PHDs from across the US and from as far as Sweden. It was incredibly empowering to discuss our medical concerns and have our questions addressed from such brilliant people that have be so focused on pediatric cancer for in many cases over 30 years. We were personally introduced to the head of pediatric at LPCH and also the CEO himself Christopher Dawes.
There was no expensed barred for the evening event which was held in a private estate in Atherton. From valet, welcoming champagne, passed hors d’oeuvres, main course serving stations and dessert stations, this event was executed with perfection.
This evening invigorated us to continue raising funds for this hospital with so many amazing medical advancements on the edge of major break throughs.
