This Week in Neuroblastoma – 08-12-14

”Unlike a lot of people, I don’t feel powerless. I know I can do something. But anyone can do something, it’s not about being special. It’s about deciding to do it-to dive into work for peace and justice and care for everybody on the planet” ~ Patch Adams. In loving memory of Robin Williams, a brilliant and funny man who fully supported children battling cancer.

Here’s this week’s links…
