Runway Heroes

November 01, 2014

On Saturday, November 1, 25 childhood cancer fighters and survivors ages 3- 13 walked the runway in the Young World department at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street. The afternoon’s event benefited The Ronan Thompson Foundation and Solving Kids’ Cancer. 11-year-old DJ Fulano spun during the event and Solving Kids’ Cancer Youth Ambassador Celia Babini acted as emcee.

10% of all proceeds from the Young World department between Nov. 1 and Nov. 2 benefitted The Ronan Thompson Foundation and Solving Kids' Cancer to support the development of novel treatments for children with the deadliest childhood cancers.

Help celebrate these amazing childhood cancer survivors as they support better treatments for kids.

Novel Clinical Research Webinar for Families, Caregivers and Researchers

August 29, 2013

To help increase awareness about the latest developments in clinical research/trials for kids with neuroblastoma and other deadly childhood cancers, SKC has started a 30-minute Webinar series geared towards families, caregivers and researchers.

Join us online this Thursday, August 29 from 4:00PM - 4:30PM EST for our webinar entitled, "Immunotherapy for Neuroblastoma/Solid Tumors using a Child's Own Genetically modified T-cells "

This type of immunotherapy is at the vanguard of clinical cancer research and has demonstrated early dramatic results including complete responses in some adults and children with blood cancers. Researchers are now attempting to duplicate this success with pediatric solid tumors.

We are excited to have Dr. Dr. Chrystal Louis, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics - Hematology/Oncology at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital present an overview of this next-generation immunotherapy that will be in clinical trials for childhood cancers within months. Dr. Louis and her colleagues at Baylor/Texas Children's are among the leading investigators in the world in novel immunotherapy for childhood cancers. This is a great opportunity to hear from the researchers themselves in a convenient and lay-friendly format.

REGISTER TODAY by emailing

There will be an opportunity for Questions & Answers at the conclusion of the presentation.

This webinar is limited to the first 100 registrants. We look forward to you joining us.
