$171,408 given to the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation

The TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation is proud to support the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation by donating $171,408 in December of 2008.  The Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF) is the premier source for neuroblastoma information and resources.  The grant will be used to fund promising research and the costs of putting new patients on trial.  The gift will also be utilized to help fund research all over the country through Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundations (CNCF) Junior Investigator Program. Some of the most notable 2 year research projects will be continuing at Sloan Kettering in New York, Texas Children’s Cancer Center in Houston, Ohio State University and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Comprised of families just like yours, we are committed to finding a cure for neuroblastoma through research, education, awareness and advocacy.
