Jeff Gordon is showing his true colors again.
The former number 24 racer is partnering with the Sohn Precision Medicine Fund to create a project to fight pediatric cancer. Yeah, he’s a seriously nice guy.
Equipped with a $200,000 grant from Sohn, Gordon is seeking better access to cancer care for children and to improve care, limiting the number of side effects that patients in treatment need to endure.
A press release outlined the importance of the project saying the organization,
“will support the identification of targeted therapies for children who do not respond to conventional therapies. This work is particularly important in the pediatric space because most cancer therapies are only approved for adult cancers, not childhood cancers or for use in children.”
Gordon’s new cancer research partnership will take residency at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
Cheers, Gordon. May you always be quick off the line and first to the flag.
