How the Money Raised at Touch A Truck is Saving Kids Who Are Battling Aggressive Cancers

100% of the money raised at Touch A Truck goes to the NMTRC, a consortium of scientists and oncologists that have research and clinical partnerships around the country, including Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.

Cutting-edge research for kids battling cancer is the reason the NMTRC exists. One of their groundbreaking programs is the country’s first precision-medicine clinical trial that helps the child’s physician choose a treatment tailored to the unique genetic makeup of the patient’s tumor. This type of advanced technology has only been previously available in adult cancers, due to the lack of government and industry funding for childhood cancers.

But with your help, we can give kids and their families hope for the future.
