We provide advice and support for children and families wishing to undertake innovative or experimential, (clinical trials), treatments for Neuroblastoma.
We also fund research designed to discover the causes of and cure for Neuroblastoma. Such research may be conducted anywhere provided there was no automatic bar to familes with United Kingdom nationality being treated at the facility or it’s relevant medical facility.
New Research Initiative J-A-C-K joins forces with Neuroblastoma Alliance UK and US-based charity Solving Kids’ Cancer to launch unique international research collaboration to target neuroblastoma research.
The international charity collaboration, which also includes other European organisations, is offering up to $500,000 to fund an international collaborative clinical research study focused on immunotherapy strategies for children with neuroblastoma, an aggressive childhood cancer.
Jacks PACK – Joining Against Cancer in Kids New York 2013! The PACK are off again to the Big Apple to run a half marathon in uniform in Central Park and to ‘Pull a Plane’ – an Airbus A320 – at New York’s John F Kennedy Airport!
This years PACK is 77 strong and growing by the minute. They will depart London Heathrow on May 16th for 6 nights in the city that doesn’t sleep!
Last years PACK raised a fantastic £42,000 for the charity. PACK leader PC Mark ‘Taff’ Edwards didn’t travel last year as he was part of the London 2012 Olympic Torch Security Team. He protected the Torch and Mother Flame as it wound its way 8,000 miles around the UK. In the middle of the relay he was also honoured by HM The Queen and was made an MBE in the Diamond Jubilee Honours List for his services to policing and charity. Taff said “I am humbled to have been given this award, but it’s not just for me, it’s for the entire PACK of officers and staff that have taken part or helped and allowed us to help the fight against childhood cancers. Another PACK member.Ch Supt Matt Bell was also made an MBE for his services to policing. Officers from The Met, Essex Police, British Transport Police and Surrey police make up this years PACK along with several retired officers, members of the NHS and Essex County Council
The final touches are being put to this year’s trip; Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Met’s Commissioner, will hopefully see the Pack off at Heathrow with a farewell reception at The London Heathrow Sofitel. Whilst in New York the Pack will be guests of the British Consul General, Danny Lopez at HM The Queens Residence in New York.
