In recognition of the increasing pressures on clinical services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to extend the SIOP 2020 abstract submission deadline until April 16 (12:00 midnight PST).
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.
