Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation is working closely with scientists, researchers and doctors; who are pioneers in the pediatric cancer field, who are on the forefront of bringing many alternative therapies into clinic which could prolong the lives of children diagnosed with Neuroblastoma until a cure is funded.
Right now only 30% of children diagnosed with Neuroblastoma will survive, but because it is an "orphan" cancer, research funding is limited as pharmaceutical companies do not see the efforts as profitable.
Recognizing that children should not be viewed as a profit, but, rather, our investment, Arms Wide Open raises money for alternative therapies and actual treatments these children so desparately need in order to survive.

MSN video from just now.
Char was bored in the hospital waiting to be given chemo. She was improvising play and was making lots of stuff with wet wipes. There was once it felt as if she was showing me magic tricks, telling me to look at the paper and see it "disappear". I had tissue over at my side so we pretended to pass our tissue through the camera. It was really hilarious.
From a few weeks back.
Cyn mommy went downstairs to the common kitchen to prepare dinner while I entertained charmaine. Dunno is it I entertain her or she entertain me but she left me hanging there like a needy chick faced with an empty room on the screen when she said, "Bye bye I'm going downstairs to the playroom now."
