Loneliest Road Campaign visits Carilion Clinic Children's Hospital

We had an incredible visit this morning from the Loneliest Road Campaign! They're a group of 7 fathers who have children with neuroblastoma, an aggressive pediatric cancer. They're trying to raise $3 million for potentially life-saving treatments currently unavailable due to a lack of funding. Their efforts could help their own children, and thousands of others, including children in Southwest Virginia who are fighting this disease. For more information, including a link to the campaign's web site, check out our story at carilion.com
You can also follow their progress on their blog.


Dr. Alice Ackerman, Carilion Chair of Pediatrics, and Dr. Joan Fisher, Pediatric Oncologist, welcome the cyclists to Carilion Clinic Children's Hospital and join them for a news conference.
