The annual Neuroblastoma Parent Education Conference provides a unique platform for parents and guardians of children affected by neuroblastoma to learn about some of the most innovative and up to date research about the disease, and to discuss issues which are relevant to their child and family. World-leading researchers and clinicians come together to present their research findings to parents who get the invaluable opportunity to engage with the experts directly.
The Conference aims to:
- Share with families the most innovative and up-to-date neuroblastoma research findings and provide them with the opportunity to hear from and engage with experts directly.
- Give families the opportunity to meet others in similar situations, and the Solving Kids’ Cancer team.
- Provide professionals with the opportunity to network, share ideas and develop collaborations.
Spread over two days, the Conference features presentations on a variety of topics intended to provide parents with vital information on the latest research and treatments, and equip them with the knowledge needed to help make informed decisions about their child’s treatment path. In addition, it provides food, refreshments and an opportunity to network with experts, other families and the Solving Kids’ Cancer team. Our aim is to develop a nexus of support, to ensure all families have the information and contacts they need throughout their journey.

History of the Neuroblastoma Parent Conference
The conference is entering its 6th year and has been constantly growing since its inception. It began as a one-day meeting and has since evolved in to a 2-day conference weekend to give families the time to gather as much information as possible and spend time with others going through similar ordeals.
