Short film about Tumor Paint! Please vote for it!
One of my friends, Dr Jim Olson, invented a drug that lights up the tumor so the surgeon can see where the tumor is during surgery. This short film explains why it is so important. The film is up for an award that can help raise money to get the drug developed! Please vote for it!

Today it was announced that a short film about our team's work on Tumor Paint was selected as a finalist for the Sundance Film Festival. I hope you will take 3 minutes to view the film - and also forward the link to your friends. Over 18,000 people have viewed the short film this week and our goal is to have over 50,000 view the film by December 20th, when voting for Audience Favorites concludes. Here is the link:
This short film documents the work that was done by our team at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Seattle Children's Hospital. If you are interested in following Tumor Paint from this point forward, I encourage you to check the Blaze Bioscience website (www.blazebioscience.com). A talented team of drug developers are working diligently at Blaze to advance this technology to human clinical trials.
I am inspired daily by our patients, such as the child featured in this film. I appreciate your vote on the film and sharing it with others to help us reach our goal of 50,000 votes, raising awareness of Tumor Paint as we move to clinical trials.
