Accomplishments since starting in 2014
Laney’s Legacy of Hope has helped pay the mortgages, car pymts, gas, ect. for over 30 children.Laney’s legacy of hope recently had the opportunity to give their first research grant for 100,000 to CHOP this past February.Laney suffered from AML, she was treated with chemotherapy, full body radiation, and a bone marrow transplant. Just when she appeared to be improving the AML returned and there were no more treatment options,
Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) accounts for approximately 20% of pediatric leukemia. It is a very aggressive & fast-moving cancer with limited treatment options. Current treatments achieve long term cures for only 60% of children. Relapsed & chemo-refractory AML make up more than half of childhood leukemia related deaths.
The Clinical trial Laney’s legacy of hope helped fund is a treatment called immunotherapy, which trains your own cells to fight cancer cells.
This Clinical trial will offer HOPE to many families that had previously run out of treatment options, like Laney Brown.
