The Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF) is honored to be working with the ANR committee to hold our Parent and Caregiver Educational Conference in conjunction with ANR2018 (www.anr2018.org)

CNCF will have access to world renowned neuroblastoma researchers as our guest speakers presenting topics on cutting edge research, upcoming clinical trials, treatment approaches for neuroblastoma and many other topics related to the research environment. The opportunity to meet with and hear from these doctors does not come along very often and we are happy to be an integral part of the ANR group.

Subsidized hotel rooms and some meals at the conference will be provided by CNCF along with travel assistance for qualifying families. The subsidized hotel room rate for our families will be $90/night + taxes, fees and any incidentals such as movie rentals, room service, etc and based on 2 adults or less + children. Do not include more than 2 adults in the room when making your hotel reservation as the price goes up and CNCF will not subsidize any more than what we currently are. Any additional cost will be the responsibility of the guest.

Invited guest speakers include: • Dr. Ruth Ladenstein, St. Anna Kinderkrebsforschung e.V. Children’s Cancer Institute, Austria • Dr. Michael Hogarty, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia • Dr. Brian Kushner/Dr. Nai-Kong Cheung Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NY • Dr. Lou Chesler, Professor, Paediatric Cancer Biology The Institute of Cancer Research UK • Stephen Sands PsyD, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York • Dr. Paul Sondel, University of Wisconsin • Dr Gudrun Schleiermacher, MD PhD, Département d'Oncologie Pédiatrique et INSERM U830 Institut Curie, France • Dr. Sara Federico, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Tennessee • Dr. Yael Mosse, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia More details to follow. The ANR meetings on Friday are free for parents to attend. If parents wish to attend any other time of the ANR meetings, the cost will be $425, the Trainee/Allied rate.

CNCF will be hosting a survivors program again in 2018 and also offer support to the families who have lost their children.
