Kelleigh's Cause, Inc is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization set up to raise funds for the search to find a cure for arteriovenous malformation (AVM).
World renown Vascular Interventional Radiologist Dr. Patricia Burrows, in partnership with the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, has begun the research.
Funds raised will be used to support translational research [the use of basic research techniques to solve clinical problems] in the field of vascular anomalies, in particular arteriovenous malformations. Money is needed to pay for the tests that analyze proteins produced by AVMs [mass spectroscopy], develop animal models to test new drugs for AVM, develop and test quantitative imaging tests for patients with AVM, and to pay the salary of a postdoctoral fellow to carry out the basic science needed to solve these problems.
