Is there a connection between birth defects and cancer?

Dragon Master Foundation

Did you know? Kids with certain structural birth defects are 3x more likely to develop a CHILDHOOD cancer.

Researchers know this, but they don’t know why. That’s why this project is really so groundbreaking! For years (forever?) diseases/conditions have been studied in silos, any connections between them only being made years later after papers are published. This is an active effort to look at two very different things – birth defects and cancer – to see where we can find common ground.

Today we are the featured foundation for the Gabriella Miller Kids First Project. We have pledged our support to this effort – easy for us to do since they are using Cavatica for their data resource center. Learn more about Kids First here!
