Kimberly H. Flaitz

Stop Children's Cancer / Kimberly H. Flaitz Research Grant

In 2018, A Stop Children's Cancer Research Grant ($250,000) was awarded to Dr. Matthew Cascio to continue developing a tumor vaccine for Osteosarcoma.

In 2019, the Board of Directors renamed this Research Grant in memory of Kimberly H. Flaitz, who passed away in 1996, from Ewing Sarcoma, a particularly aggressive form of Bone Tumor.

Although Kimberly was not cured from this dreaded disease, the important work being done will have a lasting impact on her legacy.
