Expression Analysis Adopts Cure Kids Cancer Coalition
News Nov 03, 2008
Expression Analysis, Inc. has adopted the Cure Kids Cancer Coalition as its charity and will begin its fund-raising efforts next month.
The announcement was made by Karen Michailo, Director of Marketing for Expression Analysis.
“Cure Kids Cancer is a worthy cause, and we at Expression Analysis feel this is the perfect opportunity for us to help in the fight against pediatric cancer,” Michailo said. “Of the many things we do at Expression Analysis, the one we are most dedicated to is helping others explore the reasons why cancer exists. However, we must also aid and support those who currently have this disease, including young children who are fighting for their futures. We’d like to be the ones who helped give them their chance at a long, healthy life.”
Michailo added Expression Analysis’ fund-raising efforts will help children suffering from cancer to be treated at the closest possible treatment facility, thus limiting travel costs and providing the most innovative treatments possible.
“Cure Kids Cancer is dedicated to improving and saving the lives of children afflicted with cancer,” said Robin Valentino, Director of Children’s Miracle Network at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). “CHOP is providing diagnosis, life saving treatments, cutting edge research and pediatric cancer education programs that help children with cancer and their families. We can’t thank Expression Analysis enough for their help and support. Expression Analysis, through this endeavor, is helping give families hope for their future.”
The Cure Kids Cancer Coalition is part of the corporate development within Children’s Miracle Network.
Expression Analysis will start raising funds during the upcoming American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) meeting (Nov. 11-15, 2008) in Philadelphia, Pa. Throughout the meeting, Expression Analysis will ask all visitors and attendees to participate in the “Leave Your Fingerprint on the Cure” event.
People will be asked to help complete a mural by painting either a flower or pinwheel, and finish it by leaving their fingerprint in the center of each.
In exchange, Expression Analysis will donate $10, on their behalf, to Cure Kids Cancer for everyone who participates. At the end of the ASHG meeting, the completed mural will then be donated and displayed at CHOP, and a donation will be made to Cure Kids Cancer on behalf of CHOP.

Researchers say their lipid-scrambling DNA enzyme is the first in its class to outperform naturally occurring enzymes – and does so by three orders of magnitudeREAD MORE
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
