On Friday, Sept. 23, at 9 a.m., the Congressional Pediatric Cancer Caucus, co-chaired by U.S. Representatives Michael McCaul (R-TX) and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) will host the Second Annual Childhood Cancer Summit. Watch a video explaining this inspiring endeavor.
The Summit will focus on advances and opportunities in children's cancer drug development. A panel of experts from the children's cancer community will address members of Congress and leaders in the children's cancer research, education, and advocacy community about this important issue.
The panelists will include:
In 2010, its inaugural year, the Summit brought together nearly 100 attendees, including six members of Congress and their staff. We hope this year's expanded Summit will bring even more attention to the importance of children's cancer research and funding, so that one day all children will be guaranteed a cure.
CureSearch is honored to sponsor the pre-event breakfast.
