A portion of the net proceeds from this event will stay local and support our Charity of Choice, the Ben Towne Center for Cancer Research at Seattle Children's.
"The Ben Towne Center doesn't just have a vision of curing childhood cancer - we have a plan. Our world-class researchers are spearheading a treatment, called immunotherapy
, that uses the body's immune system to eliminate cancer, without chemotherapy or radiation. This cure starts by taking T cells - specialized white blood cells that wipe out infections - from a patient's own blood. Then we re-engineer these cells, installing new genetic instructions and new receptors that enable these cells to recognize specific types of tumor cells. The modified cells are then put back into the patient, where they find and destroy the cancer. Clinical studies have shown this approach to be more targeted and more effective than traditional therapies, without their devastating side effects. The Ben Towne Center is translating this success into treatments that save children.
Our researchers have started the first round of clinical trials
exploring this potential cure, a key step toward finalizing therapies that can be used worldwide. Within 20 years, the destructive toll of traditional cancer treatments could be a thing of the past."
