The Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF) is a non-profit national health organization committed to finding a cure for neuroblastoma through research, education, awareness and advocacy. The premier source for neuroblastoma information and resources, CNCF initiatives educate the public about a disease dramatically lacking in awareness and funding. It serves as an advocate for families, as well as a liaison between healthcare providers and families.
CNCF was created in 2000 by the family and friends of Nick Tallungan, who at 10 years old, lost his courageous battle with neuroblastoma. One brave child motivated us to make a difference – for all families affected by this disease.
Today, CNCF is a global foundation representing hundreds of families. Our mission: to help fund a cure for neuroblastoma. Through the generous donations of the business community, families and friends, we create resources for families, educate the public and drive greater awareness – and funding – for neuroblastoma. We provide a forum for patients and families to share their experiences. Our national educational programs bring together clinicians, researchers and medical experts to support our mission.
