e as the honorary bat kids for each game. Check presentations by some of the organization's top fundraisers, including YAS Fitness Center founder Kimberly Fowler, LA Dodgers pitcher Aaron Harang, and the Los Angeles Dodgers, will total more than $200,000.

"I am honored and grateful to be involved in another ThinkCure! Weekend at Dodger Stadium, because we are raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer research, and because I am a long-time Dodger fan," said Stephen J. Forman, M.D., chair, Hematology & Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation at City of Hope. "The partnership between the Dodgers and our hospitals is a natural one - we take care of people who also are Dodger fans. The support we receive during ThinkCure! Weekend directly benefits the research to develop therapies that turn into treatments and cures for our patients," added Forman.

ThinkCure! funding already has resulted in groundbreaking collaborative studies. City of Hope and Children's Hospital Los Angeles recently made a breakthrough finding about the growth and spread of neuroblastoma, a malignant tumor that develops from nerve tissue. This initial research led to a federal grant from the National Cancer Institute that will extend the investigation even further.

"We are excited to be back at Dodger Stadium for ThinkCure! Weekend, which is such a great opportunity for Dodger fans and the wider community to learn about and support an effective nonprofit organization," said Stuart Siegel, M.D., director of the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. "ThinkCure! plays an important role in our work by funding the pilot studies that can lead to significant discoveries. We are thankful for the organization's ongoing support and commitment that provides real hope for children and adults with cancer."
