Curing Kids Cancer Through Collaboration



What if cancer treatments were created equally for children as they are for adults?

What if there were therapies specific to the unique biological characteristics of children just like they are for adults?

What if new discoveries could reach children’s hospitals years earlier than they do now?

What if parents had access to all therapy options specific to the cancer affecting their child?

What if doctors could find the right cure personalized to the profile of the child?

What if there was an organization willing to step between academia and industry to accelerate all of the above?

What if . . .

Imagine a world in which children are the focus of finding lifesaving cures and higher quality treatments; where the reason for finding these cures is the children, not the bottom line.

This world can be a reality, and you can help us make it happen.

        “I have been a strong supporter of The Nicholas Conor Institute for several years now although never did I suspect that my family would personally be impacted by the same rare disease that Conor had been diagnosed with 4 years ago. In October of 2008 my nephew Jackson was diagnosed with neuroblastoma and went through the same harsh treatments that Conor went through.  Although both of them are not showing any cancer activity, we still do not know the true side effects that they both could experience later in life, thus why it is critical that safer personalized treatments be developed for children with cancer.  Although extremely busy herself, Beth Anne Baber always made herself available day and night to provide my family with invaluable support and information about neuroblastoma, Jackson’s genetic test results and the treatments available and to that we will be forever grateful.”
