The "Alexa" Project / Honor Pages

"We are helping cc-TDI raise money for the PILOT PROGRAM of THE "ALEXA" PROJECT. (Named in honor of our own Alexa Naomi delos Reyes by Dr. Keller himself.) The goal of The Alexa Project is to find new treatments to move towards clinical trials for Alexa & all children affected with the Neurofibromatosis-1 (NF1) associated brain tumors called juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma (JPA). The funds will be used for a Summer Research student; the key starting piece of the project. Here’s what she/he would do: 1. Create a road-map for NF1-associated JPA and carefully determine all the cell lines for NF1-associated JPA, both from patients and from mice; 2. Get the word out to collect more surgical (and autopsy) NF-1 JPA tumor samples for use in making more cell cultures and cell lines, akin to http://focusonrhabdo.org/bio-specimen-donation/#.VPOEXPnFTo. After the Summer Student does this, the project swings into full gear!"

About

We first heard about Dr. Charles Keller when he was creating a new research project at our hospital OHSU in Portland, Oregon. He had a Courage Wall of fighters and their families. We submitted a photo of Cameron & Alexa - he was kissing her head and it was beautiful. He said it was one of his very favorite photos! This inspired the researchers to work hard for the faces they saw on that wall, for Alexa and other children fighting cancer. We were so honored.

Recently, Dr. Keller called us and asked to use the photo again in Colorado at his new research facility: the Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute. We will do anything for research and awareness of cancer and NF! I sent him all I had on Alexa so he could get to know HER. He then called and proposed this new project - The "Alexa Project" - which would actually create real treatments that could go to clinical trials. A REAL CHANCE AT A CURE FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER RELATED NF-1 JPA BRAIN TUMORS!

This project starts with PHASE #1 - a Summer Research Student. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to fund this student, who will lay all the ground work, and find all the genetic resources to create the road map to get to PHASE #2. In Phase #2, all the information will be used to create an international collaboration to further create new drug therapies to go to clinical trial for these  tumors.  (For more information, contact the research team directly at http://www.cc-tdi.org/#!team/c24vq. Here is information on cc-TDI's work on DIPG - which is an amazing breakthrough - which goes to a Phase I trial in 2015: http://www.cc-tdi.org/#!research/cfvg)

With your help, we can have NEW drug therapies for Alexa's type of tumor within a couple of years. SO PLEASE JOIN WITH ALEXA & OUR FAMILY TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE PILOT PROGRAM FOR THE "ALEXA PROJECT!"  Thank You and God Bless.

Sincerely,
The delos Reyes family
