Childhood Cancer Foundation is delighted to see that “Dinutuximab Beta”, an innovative immunotherapy drug for the treatment of High Risk Neuroblastoma, has been approved for reimbursement in Ireland. To date, this has only been available as part of clinical trials. This ground breaking drug will now become part of the frontline “standard of care” for Irish children with High Risk Neuroblastoma.  This puts Irish children on a par with children receiving the most up to date front line treatments available across the world.

In honour of International Childhood Cancer Day on 15th February, we were delighted to organise a visit to St John's Ward with some very special guests. We were joined by Batman, Wonder Woman, Tinkerbell, Star Wars and Harry Potter characters. The children were delighted to meet all of the characters and receive some character balloons, comics and sweets! A big thank you to Emerald Garrison for taking the time to meet the real superheroes of St John's Ward.
