Childhood Cancer Symposiums

Nobody becomes an expert on childhood cancer overnight, which makes juggling medical terms, biology concepts, and symptom interpretation overwhelming for parents and patients. To make matters worse, it can be hard to verify what you read online or get answers from a medical team with a caseload that keeps on growing. And where do you go when treatment ends to learn what’s next?

Our Childhood Cancer Symposiums bridge the information gap by putting parents in the same room as the world’s leading experts. Every year, our program addresses critical subjects like rare pediatric cancers and their long-term effects. Parents and caregivers who attend our Symposiums:

  • Receive in-depth information about childhood cancer biology, pathology, and treatment.
  • Interact one-on-one with speakers to discuss their individual situations.
  • Meet other families who are in similar circumstances – a source of support as they continue to navigate this difficult path.
  • Inspire a two-way conversation between medical professionals and patient families, so doctors and nurses can learn how to better address a family’s needs.

Our Symposiums are free for parents, survivors, and medical professionals. Kids are welcome to attend in our Pablove Kids’ Room, which allows parents to learn uninterrupted.

Videos of all of our programs are available online.

Resources for Families

The internet is a powerful resource for families looking for information on childhood cancer, treatment options, and organizations that can provide assistance in a time of need.

The list below is a compilation of the available resources online that we know of. It’s meant not only to help cancer families, but also to act as a tool to educate anyone who wants to learn more about the facts of pediatric cancer and what kind of treatment and options are available.
