Since 2006 the Ted Mullin Fund has striven to:

  • Raise awareness of sarcoma, a rare cancer of connective tissues for which little research and drug development funding exists.
  • Support pediatric sarcoma research and the introduction of improved therapies at the University of Chicago Medicine (UCM) Comer Children’s Hospital.
  • Improve the lives of pediatric, adolescent, and young adult cancer patients.
  • Form and equip a new generation of physician-scientists committed to developing ground-breaking pediatric cancer treatments.

Tomorrow’s top pediatric cancer treatments depend on generous investments in research today.
