A Happy New Year Donation to CureSearch
Senomyx wishes you a wonderful New Year and we thank you for your interest in our Senomyx Cares activities. In the spirit of the season, Senomyx is making a donation to CureSearch for Children’s Cancer. CureSearch funds and supports children’s cancer research and provides information and resources to those affected by children’s cancer.
During 2011, CureSearch provided funds for more than 100 clinical trials conducted by the Children’s Oncology Group, supporting researchers in their efforts to develop better treatments, and ultimately, a cure, for children and babies with cancer. The most common children’s canceris leukemia, a cancer of the blood characterized by sick immune blood cells that do not work properly and crowd out healthy blood cells. Other common childhood cancers include those affecting the immune system and tumors (lumps of sick cells stuck together) in the brain, kidneys, liver and bones.
CureSearch, which was featured in the Senomyx Cares blog Hiking for a Cure, is a special organization for one of our employees. We hope 2012 brings comfort for afflicted families and progress in the search to cure children’s cancer.
