LEARN MORE: CUSH IT TO THE LIMIT Research Priorities
Dr. Andrei Shustov, Ben’s oncologist, is a member of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and UW associate professor. He is conducting research focused on finding cures for T-cell lymphomas, an extremely rare type of immune system cancer.
Dr. Shustov has led global studies of new drugs that resulted in new treatments for patients in whom standard therapies failed. He is now leading studies that are changing approaches to treating patients with newly diagnosed T-cell lymphomas.
One of his top priorities is to help patients like Ben
with the rarest type of all lymphomas – hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma. He is now focused on looking at the biology of this lymphoma in order to identify new targets for therapy and to develop unique approaches that would cure this very challenging disease.
Philanthropy is vitally important for rare cancers because they are often overlooked by pharmaceutical companies and national grant programs. Some of the best research is taking place in Washington State and your donations have the power to accelerate the research for new cures.
