The Musella Foundation For Brain Tumor Research & Information, Inc has awarded a $99,982.00 grant for brain tumor research!
This is one of my favorite projects. We gave a grant 10 years ago to one of the components of this treatment and now after all of that hard work, it looks like things are coming together. This is not yet ready for humans but our grant will definitely speed up the process by years!
I thank everyone for their generous donations which made it possible for us to fund innovative research like this! Much of the funding came from our new memorial funds section of our website. (Go to virtualtrials.com and click on DONATIONS then Memorials.). There are too many to mention them all but the largest donations came from the Stephen Henry Gomory memorial fund, the Donald Klein memorial fund, and the Nadine Sfeir memorial fund. We also had a great response to our end of the year mailing to our loyal members, and we also used the proceeds from our National Walk To End Brain Tumors and the NY Yankees fundraisers.

The goal of this project is to generate an anticancer nanoprodrug that specifically targets brain tumor tissue and cells, allowing the treatment of established brain tumors and prevent tumor metastasis/evasion and recurrence.
