The Macy Easom Cancer Research Foundation was founded in March 2012 in loving memory of Macy Easom, a four-year-old girl diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a pediatric cancer of the liver, who passed away at the age of five. Out of the top 10 causes of childhood cancer mortality, hepatoblastoma is the least researched. Only a few research laboratories exist, and prior to MECRF, none were located in the United States.
As less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's budget (your tax dollars at work) is directed to childhood cancers, the Foundation’s focus is to fund the research needed to increase the survival rate and quality of life of children diagnosed with pediatric cancer, as we contine to search for a cure.
