The Dragon Masters Foundation is a dynamic dedicated foundation tackling a critical need for cancer research, harnessing Big Data. They work tirelessly with experts, raising funds and awareness.
I may be a little biased because I am one of the founders, but I know first hand the dedication that this volunteer organization has for people with cancer. The driving force for us is to find cures that are kinder and more effective than anything available today - especially for patients with rare cancers like brain cancer. Through innovation and collaboration, we believe a cure is possible in our lifetime.
Because of the Dragon Master Foundation, I am much more aware of dragons. My son was named after David who this foundation was started in honor of. I am sure David would be a role model for my son so one way to honor him is to like dragons. My son loves dragon books and has several dragon shirts. In a small way, by liking dragons I feel like I am supporting Dragon Master Foundation.
While I am a "General Member of the Public" I am also a mom who lost her 8 year old son to brain cancer. I am so thankful that this organization is taking the lead in bringing together such important information to help push research forward. It makes so much sense to do this so that time is not wasted on duplicating results. Time is of the essence... the more time it takes to find cures, the more lives that will be lost. Thank you Dragon Master Foundation for your incredible insight and determination.
The Dragon Master Foundation is one of the smartest ideas I have ever heard of and when the president of the Foundation informed me of the database, I was amazed at how perhaps looking at cancer in a different way would be an answer to our prayers. I volunteered with the Foundation at Curefest in 2013, and since then, the Foundation has grown and will continue to grow until it is one of the top cancer research facilities in America.
I have had the pleasure of meeting the President of Dragon Master Foundation, Amanda Haddock, personally. Her desire and vision for using Big Data to find a cancer cure is obvious. She has taken the personal heartbreak of losing a child to pediatric brain cancer, and turned it into a mission to save other children. Not only children, but in the grand scheme of things, save the lives of thousands living with cancer. I lost my husband to brain cancer, and during his battle to save his life, "Big Data" never was mentioned. Dragon Master Foundation is thinking above and beyond the confines of a box. Brain cancer was discovered in 1873 and now, in 2014, Amanda and her Foundation are beginning to make advances that are 141 years in the making. With people like Amanda and her Foundation in the corner for cancer, I don't see it taking another 141 years before there is a cure for brain cancer. Cure one, possibly cure all. Imagine a world where ALL cancer can be cured. It would be a wonderful thing. Thank you Amanda, and Dragon Master Foundation for all your tireless efforts to make this happen.
Dragon Master Foundation (DMF) is an excellent non profit. The founder tragically lost her young son to brain cancer. She and everyone at DMF share a passion for the mission of finding a cure for brain cancer in its many forms as well more effective treatments. DMF's approach to this mission is innovative and intelligent.
I have had the pleasure of communicating with Amanda about the foundation and keeping up with their endeavors. What a great organization. They above board, and making great great strides to knock out brain Tumors, making progress in an area which has remained stagnant for decades.
I lost my young daughter to brain cancer earlier this year. I now know how important collaborate research and databases are. This is a life or death situation. Dragon Master Foundation is getting the scientists the tools that they need to build the databases to cure these relentless diseases. I can think of nothing more important to the research community
I have had the pleasure of speaking with the President of Dragon Master Foundation (Amanda Haddock) at great length. I am so impressed and inspired by their big thinking, to undertake a genomic/clinical database project so huge that most would shy away. They have a vision for using Big Data to conquer cancer and other diseases, starting with pediatric brain tumors--and area for which advances have been lacking. They have the expertise and know-how to integrate medicine and technology. Therapeutic advances in cancer have been achieved by genomic database projects like this, but those projects have been limited in scope and time. Dragon Master Foundation is thinking bigger and broader and longer term. I believe in Dragon Master Foundation and their vision--that they can do exactly what they are setting out to do. Amanda and the Foundation are motivated by the desire to make a difference for other people, and from that motivation (and their unique technology expertise) good things will come.
