Congrats to Sofia on the end of her cancer treatment! Patients treated at the Johns Hopkins All Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Institute ring a bell and celebrate the end of their treatment with staff before leaving the hospital. Sofia has battled with neuroblastoma for the past year, but will soon start a new clinical trial drug called DFMO to prevent cancer from reoccurring.
Tune in to US 103.5 to hear patients and families from all around the area are sharing their stories about the role that All Children's Hospital plays in their lives on Thursday, December 3th and Friday, December 4th from 6am to 7pm.
All funds raised through the Radiothon go directly to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg and its outreach locations throughout west central Florida.
Who better to teach you about an issue than those living with it?
That's the premise behind "My Life, My Illness."
This award-winning video project is a cooperative effort of All Children's Child Life and Creative Services Departments. It serves as a tool to help pediatric physicians and nurses in training develop more effective communication skills by understanding what it's like to be a child with a chronic or life-threatening illness.
