Dr. Cairo is indebted to PCRF’s Board of Directors, Advisory Board Members, officers and volunteers for their generous support of the aforementioned pediatric cancer research programs. This year 2020 marks the 38th year of sustained and continuous support of our research mission on children and adolescents with cancer. Over this long-standing partnership, pediatric cancer survival rates have improved significantly for certain types of cancers from 20% to 90%!
