The Pediatric Cancer Foundation plans to open two additional trials in the fall.
“We are honored to receive this award.” said Nancy Crane, Executive Director. “We have the utmost respect and admiration for all of the nonprofits that were nominated, and we are fortunate to live in a city where the work of nonprofits is celebrated.”
