an interview mid Nov with
Alexandra's mother, Liz Scott, that

What is neuroblastoma?
Neuroblastoma is one of
the most common solid
tumours of early
childhood usually found
in babies or young
children. The disease
originates in the
adrenal medulla or other
sites of sympathetic
nervous tissue. The most
common site is the
abdomen (near the
adrenal gland) but can
also be found in the
chest, neck, pelvis, or
other sites. Most
patients have widespread
disease at diagnosis.
Adrenal and nervous system tumors?
been learning about a chemical that
could cause such.
Although I am not implying that in
this case there is any connection
2-butoxyethanol & what it does
there any helps here for early diagnosis?
My granddaughter (who is 8 years old) and her
friend ... helped me with a Lemonade Stand
fund raiser for pediatric cancer research at the
May day Fly-in
in Valdez, Alaska.
We raised $49.69 over a 6 hour time period. (The
lemonade cost $15 plus the cups). Every little
bit helps, right?
