Family and friends,  We wanted to take a moment and thank all of you for supporting the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation, Inc. in honor and memory of our Brave Eli….    Eli’s big brother Austin and I(Paul) will be heading to St. Louis, Missouri on September 30, 2011. We will meet with Dr. Todd Druley, M.D., Ph.D.  Dr. Druley  will give us a tour of the hospital and will share some recent results with us. The money that has been raised ( $35,687.65)  will be donated to his research to find a CURE!    Dr. Druley is also an “A” Award recipient of the Alex’s Lemonade Stand foundation as well.  We were ask if we could take a check for $375,000.00 from the Alex’s Foundation when we meet Dr. Druley.  Well my answer was a big yes!  This is Eli’s STAND! This trip is in Eli’s memory and honor and it’s Liz Scotts honor to do this for Eli as “we bELIeve in a cure”  so now with close to a HALF MILLION DOLLARS we make a STAND! against childhood cancer.   Special thanks to Oxford Area High School , Bill Hammond’s Martial Arts, Robinson’s Furniture, RK Environmental Services, Our Children Making Change, Oxford Auto & Tire, and everyone that held an Eli & Alex’s Lemonade Event, or stopped by and supported one of our event’s in Eli’s memory.  Please continue to help us win this war!  No child should ever be told by their Mom and Dad that they have Leukemia (Cancer).  We will not stop until a cure is found, because Eli would want us to carry on this fight to find a cure, even though he cannot be here to do so.

Under organizations, just click on Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Fund and this will also take you to his page.  
The fund’s raised will be directed to** Todd Druley, M.D., Ph.D.   Dr. Druley is also the doctor the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation funds will go to, as well as other organizations.   We must put a stop to all of the poison they are using to treat these precious chidren with.  This is what our Angel Eli would want us to do………….continue his wishes to find a cure.
**Assistant Professor in Pediatrics and Genetics Washington University School of Medicine.
Dr. Druley is a faculty member in the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology.  His research is based in the hypothesis that much of pediatric disease presentation and treatment is heavily influenced by the unique combination of rare inherited DNA mutations within each person. Dr. Druley’s research focuses on adapting the latest genomic technologies toward characterizing these germline variants on a population-based scale as well as examining how these mutations interact within an individual to influence a variety of diseases, particularly pediatric cancer. The long-term goals are to better understand the pathophysiology of pediatric cancer as well as to identify all of the pertinent germline variants within a pediatric cancer patient prior to starting therapy in order to provide a genetically customized treatment plan designed to maximize anti-cancer activity while minimizing toxicity and morbidity.
