About James Lodato

My son, James, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS) on July 31, 2017. It is a rare and aggressive form of cancer. In learning about his disease, I have found that there have been no new successful treatments in several decades and there is no cure. By the time James showed any signs or symptoms of his disease, it had metastasized to his abdomen, bones, bone marrow, and was widespread through his lymph nodes. I’ve learned that metastasis is common with sarcomas and many times by the time there are signs of the disease, it has already metastasized to distant parts of the body. The original site of James’s tumor is in his left calf. Due to the advanced level of James’s disease, the presence of the PAX3 gene, and the lack of medical advancements, James has an 8% chance of surviving 5 years. Unfortunately, only 4% of Federal funding for cancer research goes to all childhood cancers and there are hundreds of childhood cancers. All of these factors combined, lead to a dismal prognosis for James. In an effort to bridge the overwhelming gap and in honor of James’s 7th birthday, I have started an honor page for James. Any donation to the Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-TDI) supports active research projects on rhabdomyosarcoma, osteosarcoma, DIPG, medulloblastoma, and hepatoblastoma as well as other cancers. To learn more about how your donation helps bridge scientific discovery to effective clinical trials for children with cancer, visit cc-TDI.org, like their page at Facebook.com/cctdilab or follow them in Twitter @ cctdilab. Your contribution is tax deductible and a receipt will be mailed to you. Thank you for helping to pursue smart, effective treatments for the rarest pediatric cancers.
