This two-day event on November 6-7, is free to anyone affected by, or interested in, neuroblastoma.

Neuroblastoma is a difficult to treat childhood cancer that strikes children, on average, at only two years of age. Children with resistant or relapsed disease, after current treatment options are exhausted, have very poor survival rates.

The Covid-19 pandemic has created many challenges for research institutions and advocacy organizations, one of which is the cancellation of numerous scientific and educational conferences that focus on neuroblastoma. This challenge also provided Solving Kids' Cancer (SKC), the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF), and Solving Kids Cancer-UK (SKC-UK) the opportunity to think globally, extend their collective ambitions and work with international partners to develop and host the Neuroblastoma Parent Global Symposium (NPGS), the first of its kind for the global neuroblastoma community.

“Connecting families with cancer care providers and researchers as well as with other families is invaluable during a time when the cancer journey can be so isolating.” said Scott Kennedy, Executive Director of Solving Kids’ Cancer. “Pivoting to a virtual format allows for international expansion so that more families have access to these valuable resources. We are excited about building and serving a global community of families, clinicians, and researchers.”

The program development is being led by the NPGS Steering Committee, chaired by Dr. Daniel Morgenstern, Director of the New Agent and Innovative Therapy Program at SickKids, Toronto. The committee includes clinicians and researchers of international repute to advise on the scope and content of the program, which will include 25 virtual sessions of credible and reliable patient/parent education about neuroblastoma with information for the newly diagnosed, overview of international frontline treatments, best practices in clinical care, relapse options, psycho/social issues, drug development and emerging therapies, survivor issues and bereavement support.
