The departments of Ped Surgery/Urology and Ped Oncology/Hematology at University Children’s Hospital, Tuebingen, Germany are organizing the 7th International Tuebingen Symposium on Pediatric Solid Tumors from 28th-29th September 2018 in Tuebingen, Germany
Hi, my name is Jess Morgan –I’m a member of the SIOP YI-NET board and an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in the UK (I work part time as a clinician, and part time as a researcher). This week, I’ve been asked to share about my recent trip to visit a children’s cancer service in Cameroon, West Africa.
Hi everyone! Today I am posting on behalf of YI NET Member Diana Withrow, who is sharing her experiences of volunteering at a pediatric oncology camp.
For the past six nights, I have slept on a bottom bunk and awoken to the view of the Shenandoah Valley out my window. I have shared a space smaller than my bedroom with five people – my co-counselors and three 11- and 12-year-old survivors of childhood cancer. For the girls, it was their first time at Camp Fantastic, an NIH-affiliated weeklong overnight camp in Virginia exclusively for children affected by cancer.
