Dear NB Families:
The Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF) will not be holding a conference in 2006. This decision is based in part on obtaining the necessary funding, the time needed to secure such funding and also allow current research efforts time to mature in order to provide our families with the most up-to-date information.
The conferences will now be held every odd year starting in 2007. It will permit CNCF and interested families to hold fundraising events that will ensure the continuation of this forum of information sharing and family support. We feel the NB Conference is an integral part of the journey we are on. We are therefore seeking your help in holding fundraising projects to cover the costs of the conference and allow all families an equal opportunity to attend.
We anticipate a bigger and better conference in 2007 and will work to implement the many suggestions we have received over the years. Your input has been invaluable to us and serves as our building blocks for successful programs.
We would like to thank you for your prior attendance and look forward to seeing again in 2007.
Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation
