The Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute
CC-TDI serves childhood cancer patients and their families who suffer from types of cancer that have not seen advances in decades. Children with cancer are an underserved population and deserve treatments as aggressive as the cancers they are battling.
Location: Beaverton, OR
Organization mission statement: To ensure that all kids survive childhood cancer by delivering new drugs to clinical trial through scientific discovery
This organization or cause is a 501(c)3 non-profit: Yes
What groups or causes does your organization serve?: We serve childhood cancer patients and their families who suffer from types of cancer that have not seen advances in decades. Because many pediatric cancers are rare (and not profitable) funding and resources are scarce to drive treatment forward. Only 3 new treatments have been FDA approved to treat ALL forms of childhood cancer in the past 30 years. Children with cancer are an underserved population and deserve treatments as aggressive as the cancers they are battling.
Project description: Website Redesign: The Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute is a start-up, nonprofit biotech that has made a mission of driving discoveries into clinical trials. Our supporters include many audiences with varying degrees of scientific knowledge including: pharmaceutical companies, the National Cancer Institute, families of children with rare cancers, and childhood cancer foundations. We need to be able to communicate the work we are doing to parents with high interest and engagement but little scientific background AND pharmaceutical companies and the NCI who need detailed scientific information on our research. In addition, we need to capture the magic of the laboratory and the exciting and innovative work that happens in that space. This is a space that offers hope to kids suffering from cancers without good treatment options.
Project needs: storytelling, website design
Project Timeline: 3-6 months
How will this creative work help you overcome challenges or meet specific goals?: A website redesign will help us effectively reach our varied audiences including but not limited to: families of children with cancer, the National Cancer Institute, pharmaceutical companies and philanthropic foundations. We need help combining human interest and biomedical research into one cohesive story. It will also help us demonstrate how innovative cc-TDI's space and research approaches are.
