About the research we fund
Sarcoma: a type of bone cancer that many Canadians have never heard of. Not only is this a rare form of bone cancer, it tends to affect young children or the elderly. In fact, Valérie was diagnosed with Sarcoma at the age of 19 and Terry Fox was diagnosed with Sarcoma when he was 18. Due to its rarity, this type of cancer has not received much attention in the cancer research world.That is the reason why we raise much needed funds for groundbreaking research being conducted in the Diallo Lab at the Ottawa Hospital.
The Diallo Lab is interested in the study and development of novel "viral sensitizer" drugs that make cells more susceptible to viruses. The goal is to use these drugs in diverse virus-based therapeutics, including for cancer and gene therapy, as well as to improve methods for producing vaccines.
Valérie’s Flutter Foundation with the purpose of educating and empowering the community about all cancers, be they common or rare. The scientific community will receive research grants with the goal of finding a cure. For the scholastic community, Valérie’s Flutter Foundation will act as an educational tool to help inform and inspire students to better understand the disease and to get involved to help make a difference.
Valérie’s Flutter Foundation will offer hope, inspiration and monetary contributions to cancer research. By reuniting all types of cancers and making each known, Valérie’s Flutter Foundation will succeed in its goal of helping advance cancer research and shed light on a very possible cure for cancer.
