Hyundai Offers Hope to Children Battling Cancer

Hyundai Hope On Wheels and Washington-area Hyundai dealers on Sept. 19 awarded Children’s National Health System a $250,000 Hyundai Scholar Hope Grant for pediatric cancer research. The grant will support the work of pioneering researchers Drs. Catherine Bollard and Kirsten Williams, whose efforts will help high-risk patients with acute leukemia or Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after bone marrow transplants. “Hyundai Hope on Wheels is absolutely critical to the Oncology Center at Children’s National," said Dr. Jeffrey Dome, Division Chief of Oncology. "Hyundai’s strategic commitment to supporting childhood cancer research has enabled us to develop highly innovative treatments. Our goal at Children’s National is to cure cancer and enable survivors to lead happy, healthy, and productive lives. Hyundai shares our vision, and that is why we are so grateful to be one of their partners, bringing hope to families.” Children’s National is one of 36 recipients across the country to receive a 2014 Hyundai Scholar Hope Grant. In all, Hyundai Hope on Wheels is awarding $9 million in research grants this month in honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Children’s National, a longtime partner of the organization, has received $960,000 from Hope On Wheels since 2010. See Facebook photo album.
