The Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation
The Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF) was founded in 2000 by parents who had lost a child to neuroblastoma. Hundreds of families have joined us in our fight to make the journey of neuroblastoma a little easier. The monies raised through the Tiger Trot would be used to sponsor our Kid’s Room at the annual parent and caregiver conference for those effected by neuroblastoma, located at the Westin Hotel in Lombard. This is a place where neuroblastoma victims and their siblings come for 2 days to do crafts, watch magicians, get their faces painted and have fun playing with other kids who are just like them. There is a feeling of belonging when other kids in the room have bald heads, chemotherapy ports and a host of other medical problems that come with high dose chemotherapy and radiation. These kids are not stared at, made fun of or excluded – rather we have heard, “Thank you for making this weekend the best days of my life!”
