Letter from the President

Keith Koeller, Executive President

Koeller, Nebeker, Carlson, Haluck, LLP

It is a great honor and privilege to serve as the President of the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, a renowned leader in philanthropic support to key research institutions across the country. My youngest son was diagnosed with leukemia in 2002 and is now graduating from law school this spring because of research advancements that have significantly increased survival rates for childhood cancer.

My belief is that world class research is the key to both finding a cure and developing targeted therapies that will diminish the substantial side effects of current treatment protocols. Since childhood cancer does not impact as large of a group as adult cancers, the economic incentive to develop treatment is not as great. Thus, we need to fill this gap with financing for childhood cancer treatment.

PCRF has established the means for identifying the most state of the art research through our grant review process. When you contribute to PCRF, you can do so with the confidence that your gift is being used to fund the best pediatric cancer research in the world.

Your gift gives life,

Keith Koeller
