Coach Brenden Brady believes it’s important that his players understand there is more to football than what happens on the field. He has been bringing his high school football teams to the Carly’s Club Holiday Party as volunteers for the past three years. The first two years he was with Williamsville East, and this past year, Lockport High School.

Every year, his team shows up in their jerseys because, as Coach Brady knows, many Carly’s Club members (pediatric cancer patients and survivors) see athletes as celebrities and heroes.

Evidence suggests that enrollment in clinical trials can yield better outcomes for the patients who participate. In fact, almost all standard cancer therapies used today got their start in a clinical trial. Why then are adolescents, or those ages 15 to 19, less likely than younger pediatric patients to take advantage of these options?
