Thank you to our sponsors and guests!
Band of Parents funds new trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The Band presented a check to Dr. Suzanne Wolden at its Evening of Hope benefit on April 30, 2014 to fully fund a new trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering. The trial will investigate administering lower doses of radiation to children.
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.
