At that moment, our founding members realized they could make a difference. A short time later, about 100 families of children in treatment for neuroblastoma came together to form the Band of Parents. We are from all walks of life and share the common bond of fighting this disease and the optimism that with help, a cure can be found. In the past decade, Band of Parents has expanded its advocacy, funding research in several major cancer centers throughout the United States. Band of Parents has committed more than $6 million to neuroblastoma research.
