Support Childhood Cancer Patients in Ukraine supporting Band of Parents
Band of Parents


Neuroblastoma is an aggressive, pediatric cancer, mostly striking children less than 5 years of age and is diagnosed in approximately 700 children each year in the US. It's cause is unknown. Arising in the developing nerves of a child, it often appears as a tumor in the chest or abdomen. Neuroblastoma is difficult to treat, with patients suffering multiple relapses. 
Due to the high cost of research and the small number of children diagnosed annually, pediatric cancer is severely underfunded by both the pharmaceutical industry and federal government. 
Band of Parents is a grassroots, nonprofit organization and was formed to fund innovative research and clinical trials to help increase the survival rate of this deadly cancer. Band of Parents has funded more than $10 million dollars over the last 14 years to help save lives and continues its mission to fast-track a cure, using less toxic, targeted therapies.

Band of Parents has been touched by the frightening conditions facing childhood cancer patients in hospitals across Ukraine. These children are fighting two wars. The places that are supposed to heal sick children are now simply trying to protect them from deadly explosions. Many are receiving compromised treatments while medical staff face dwindling supplies. 

As parents to children battling cancer, we are horrified and are banding together to offer our support. Band of Parents has members all over the world and consider the organization a part of the global community. These children need and deserve all the help we can offer.

All donations made here will go directly to The Tabletochki Foundation to support their current campaign for the pediatric cancer patients in Ukraine. 

Our hearts are with those in Ukraine. Let's send them all the hope and support we can.
