September is designated as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month...

... a time when we celebrate advances in childhood cancer treatment and care, remember the children we've lost, and engage new advocates to join in our mission of achieving a day when every child with cancer can live a long and healthy life.


The events listed here are open to the public.

The pediatric patient population with chemotherapy-induced hearing loss represents a segment of the cancer survivor community with a severe burden of disease with great unmet medical need. An externally-led, FDA-approved Patient Focused Drug Development (PFDD) meeting on September 13, 2018 near Washington, DC will explore these issues in-depth. More information>
