At IMRIS, Deerfield Imaging, we support physician cancer research for better patient outcomes. Join us, by supporting the Children's Cancer Research Fund.
About 11,050 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2020.*
Twelve-year-old Teniyah Foley has a wonderful, creative imagination. She likes to sit in her room and imagine herself on different planets. Her intergalactic travels let her go anywhere she wants, giving her a chance to make art and write stories. But when she was 8 years old, she began to get sick with bad headaches and vomiting, and she was often exhausted.
Teniyah’s grandmother Sylvia brought her to the pediatrician again and again, where she was diagnosed with illnesses ranging from migraine headaches to the flu. After receiving yet another unsatisfactory diagnosis, Sylvia brought Teniyah to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. When she was given a computed tomography (CT) scan, it was clear—Teniyah had a brain tumor.
Her physician sent her to the Children’s Brain and Spinal Cord Tumor Program. At Children’s, neurosurgeons diagnosed Teniyah with the most common kind of malignant brain tumor: medulloblastoma.
“Arriving at Children’s was a godsend…a loving atmosphere I’ll never forget,” said Sylvia. For six weeks, Teniyah received craniospinal radiation five days a week. After her radiation treatments, she underwent a successful surgery to respect—or cut out—the posterior fossa mass.
She received a special therapy and radiation plan that attempted to reduce the toxic late effects of treatment on memory, learning and growth for children with malignant, treatment-responsive tumors. Physicians hope this modified treatment will allow her imagination to remain as vivid as the day she came to Children’s.
Today, Teniyah is doing very well at home without evidence of tumor recurrence. She continues to put the beautiful visions she sees onto paper—with a fresh outlook from around the galaxy.- complements of CHOA- Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta

This September, IMRIS- Geared Up For Good is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!
Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.
IMRIS, was founded on research and this speaks to our company vision and passion!
Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.
So we are banding together , raising funds through our challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.
Please support us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.
Your support will change little lives.
