The Bryce Foundation contributes to research and nutritional efforts consistent with its vision and purposes. Recent efforts include:
- In October 2015, the Bryce Foundation made a targeted donation of $10,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to support the Phase I Trial of a promising drug (OXi4503)that is designed to help patients with AML (the type of leukemia Bryce had).
- In May 2013, the Bryce Foundation provided the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) with a targeted gift of $10,000 to help fund research by Dr. Jeffrey Molldrem, a leading expert at the Anderson Cancer Center, University of Texas. He is developing therapies designed to help a patient's own immune system fight leukemia -- thereby reducing the dependence on chemo and radiation-based treatments. This type of research is near and dear to our hearts given what our son Bryce endured with his many treatment complications.
- In late 2011, the Bryce Foundation made a $10,000 donation to help fund a Georgetown University Hospital cookbook project being written specifically to address the special nutritional needs of children with cancer. This book, entitled Happily Hungry, was published a couple of months ago. It includes dozens of healthy and tasty recipes provided by a certified nutritionist under the guidance of Dr. Shad, who leads the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Division at Georgetown University Hospital. The book has received very positive reviews (Google “Happily Hungry Cookbook” to see some).
