Pocket Full of Hope

Pocket Full of Hope - Curing cancer with science, nature and vision

Join Us April 23

When your job involves caring for kids with brain cancer, you want to walk into every room with hope in your pocket. Dr. Jim Olson and his crackerjack team bring this kind of optimism to their work each day. They combine their positive outlook, a passion for families affected by cancer and unparalleled scientific creativity to develop breakthrough treatments and cures for challenging diseases.

The Olson team is harnessing disease-fighting compounds that plants and animals use to stay healthy – and using these natural defenses to create a whole new class of powerful medications. These new therapies have the potential to treat and cure a range of difficult diseases, from brain cancer to Alzheimer’s disease.

Come hear the team’s story, celebrate with them as they share their progress, and help keep their work efficiently moving for the patients who urgently need new answers.
