About The Children's Cancer Project

The Children's Cancer Project

Fullfilling the National Cancer Center’s desire to provide funds for pediatric cancer research and education, we created the Children’s Cancer Project to investigate prevention and treatment of pediatric oncology, as well as public education relating to detection.

Our fellowship to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia focuses on neuroblastoma, the most common solid tumor cancer found in children.
