Anthony Pasqua, President of the Children’s Leukemia Research Association Inc. tours the lab of the world famous Dana Farber Cancer Institute along with his daughter, Susan (Pasqua) Bogue who was diagnosed with AML in January 1980 (at the age of 5). Susan received a Bone Marrow donation from her brother, Michael and is cured.

Also, with Mr. Pasqua is his son, Michael, who in 2003 was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Michael’s treatment was chemotherapy and radiation and he is in total remission. He has received his undergraduate degree in science and will pursue a career in oncology.

Standing with the Pasqua family are two scholars who have received funding from Children’s Leukemia Research Association—Dr. Takaomi Sanda and Dr. Jennifer Trowbridge. Both scholars are on the staff of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
