Band of Parents presents Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) with check for a landmark $2M grant. Aurora Ismaili, a 13 year old neuroblastoma survivor and a Band member presented MSK's Dr. Cheung with a check for the second installment of a $2M collaborative grant on behalf of the Band, the Isabella Santos Foundation, the Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation, Inc., the Press On to CURE Childhood Cancer Fund, and the I Back Jack Foundation, Inc. This grant will fully fund the GMP manufacture and clinical testing of an Hu3F8 bi-specific antibody targeted at neuroblastoma.

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 within 12-24 months of funding.
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.
