The Nathalie Traller family established a fund with the Rutledge Foundation to honor Nathalie and her goal to find a cure for Aveolar Soft Part Sarcoma (ASPS). With the help of family and friends, THE SHAVING OF THE GILBEY fundraiser, and the KICK ASPS 5K they raised $13,786.00.
The Traller family chose Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute in Beaverton, Oregon to be the recipient of their fund. The Rutledge Foundation funded a research grant for a pilot project to develop pediatric ASPS cell lines from different years of disease progression for a female teenage patient. This research could be very helpful as a preclinical research tool to investigate new potential therapies for different stages of progression for ASPS.
