Treehouse Childhood Cancer Initiative was honored today to host Pieter and Petra Vorenkamp from the Live for Others Foundation. Pieter and Petra's son Tim died of synovial sarcoma in 2016 after a five-year battle. Visit L4OF.org for more about Tim's inspirational story, including how he founded Live for Others just before his passing.

Live for Others is providing matching funds of $50,000 that will extend California Institute for Precision Medicine (CIAPM) supplemental funding for Treehouse. As part of their visit, they took a tour of the Haussler Lab where co-founders Olena Vaske (Morozova) and David Haussler showed them work on brain size research.

Thank you, Pieter and Petra, for your generous support!
