Filosa’s cousin, and Daniela’s mother, Katia, has started a foundation along with her husband and Daniela’s father Anthony, called the Daniela Conte Foundation, to raise money in an effort to research new forms of pediatric cancer therapies.
Katia said that “only 4% of federal government cancer research funds goes towards pediatrics” and according to the LLS “Over the last 40 years only 4 new pediatric cancer therapies have been developed, a small number in comparison to the hundreds for adults, underscoring the urgent need for continued research in targeted therapies and immunotherapies for pediatric cancers.” Katia hopes that one day a cure for childhood cancer will be found, something that Daniela dreamed of doing when she grew up.
