Powering the Possible for Pediatric Caner


Published on

Since the 1980s, the FDA has approved one new treatment for any type of childhood cancer, compared with 50 approved treatments for adult cancers during the same time period. Dell believes in the power of technology to unlock new possibilities and advance treatment options for pediatric cancer beyond today's 'trial and error' methods. Dell is committed to providing the IT infrastructure, corporate funding and employee volunteers to support this cause.
