As you may already be aware, Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty - The Cachon Team is expanding and setting new goals for the year. Our worthy cause, the Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida, is extremely important to us, and being able to give back to the community is one of the most rewarding aspects of the work we do. In order to continue to give back, and change more lives than ever we’ve decided to participate in Coldwell Banker’s “CB Supports St. Jude” program.
On top of our current goal of raising $10,000 for the Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida, we will donate a portion of our income at closing to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In order to continue to develop technologies and treatments that save lives daily, St. Jude relies on sponsorships and donations—that’s why your referrals are so important!
So if you or anyone you know is looking to buy or sell real estate, send them our way! They receive the top-tier service that we’re known for, AND a worthy cause will benefit as well!
YOUR REFERRALS CHANGE LIVES!!
Below is a post I found on the St. Jude website discussing a brand new cloud-based data-sharing platform known as the St. Jude Cloud. The cloud is enabling researchers all over the world to share vital information with each other and make progress together:
Imagine a cloud-based data-sharing platform with 1.25 petabytes of genomic data along with apps to make the most of those details. That is St. Jude Cloud, which was created and launched by St. Jude scientists in 2018. The cloud makes data sharing faster and easier for researchers. Its goal is to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
St. Jude Cloud is the world’s largest pediatric cancer genomic data resource. It includes data from more than 10,000 childhood cancer patients and survivors. It also holds genomic details of more than 800 sickle cell disease patients.
The cloud’s content grows larger each day. Its apps and design help those who are not computing experts do complex analyses.
“Data sharing is especially important for making progress in childhood cancer, which is driven by many different and distinct genetic alterations,” said Jinghui Zhang, Ph.D., Computational Biology chair. “We created St. Jude Cloud as a resource and data-sharing model for researchers worldwide.”
Cancer Discovery published a report on this work.
Jinghui Zhang, Ph.D., chair, and Clay McLeod, both of St. Jude Computational Biology, helped create a massive cloud platform of genomic data.
