Date: Wednesday, March 3rd
Time: 9:00-9:45am
Virtual Zoom


What’s Up Doc? is our annual reporting event where attendees hear directly from our internationally recognized pediatric cancer specialists and learn the importance of supporting efforts to end kids’ cancer. Doctors and researchers will discuss current projects funded, as well as provide insight into the future of cancer research and their expected results. A patient Ambassador family who has benefited first-hand will also discuss the importance of kids’ cancer research and how it has impacted their family.  This is a great way for you to learn about the work you are making happen, and a truly meaningful way for you to share your support of kids’ cancer research with friends, family, or colleagues.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s What’s Up Doc? will be a Virtual Event
