We are pleased to welcome a new French association, Nina, un rayon de soleil, to join the investigation of gliomatosis cerebri. The association was recently created in the Lorena region following the death of Nina, a 9-year-old girl, of gliomatosis cerebri.
With this new association there are already five associations in France, the United States and Spain, created by parents whose children died of gliomatosis cerebri, who have come together to finance the first research project to be carried out internationally between centers in different countries to investigate this rare type of child brain cancer.
The scholarship is published on the website of the III Congress for the Investigation of Child Gliomatosis Cerebri, held in Barcelona last September with the assistance of researchers and families, an event that led to this initiative.
This is the first international call for research for specific multi-institutional projects on gliomatosis cerebri. It amounts to 300,000 euros and will be financed between the Huesca association Izas,la princesa guisante, (scholarship initiator), the French Franck, un rayon de soleil and Mathys, un rayon de soleil, the American AYJ Fund and now also the French association Nina, un rayon de soleil. The scholarship remains open to other possible international collaborations.
Thank you all for supporting our cause.
