WHO WE ARE
The Band of Parents is a member-based organization with the goal of funding new therapies for neuroblastoma, a rare and deadly cancer that only strikes children. Our mission is to seek projects that have already been examined in the lab and are in need of assistance to rapidly move into a patient population.
Our goals are simple - to help and support each other as we face the unthinkable and to raise more funds for research, so that ALL children with neuroblastoma can survive and thrive. Cancer is an isolating disease for anyone, but as families we have banded together because together we are stronger and neuroblastoma is not something to face alone.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS & SUPPORTERS:

The annual BoP meeting with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center neuroblastoma team will be held on January 20, 2016 at MSKCC. You must be a member of BOP to attend. It is a great opportunity to hear about their latest research and upcoming trials.
On behalf of the Band of Parents, Kim Roginski, Development Director, recently presented funding to MSKCC's Dr. Kushner for the Bivalent Vaccine Plus Beta-Glucan for High-Risk Neuroblastoma in First Remission trial and to Dr. Cheung for his Bi-Specific Antibody trial.
