We know that children with cancer don’t always receive the best pain management possible and that parents are often looking for more solutions at a time when they are stressed and exhausted.
Carfilzomib is currently being evaluated in a phase I clinical trial for difficult-to-treat pediatric cancers at 10 top-tier pediatric hospitals across North America. Open to all eligible children with relapsed leukemia and solid tumours, the study will closely monitor and analyze the side effects of Carfilzomib to determine the maximum dose children can safely tolerate.

“It’s stories like Alex’s, featured in our new shave commercials, that make our team at Virgin Radio SO proud and excited to be part of Kids Cancer Care’s Shave a Lid for a Kid Campaign! We attended our first shave at Elboya School last April, and once the buzz from the clippers died down, 42 kids and seven teachers were rockin’ slick new do’s. Even more exciting is that they raised $57,000.
