TWIPO #33 ~Effective Advocacy

February 10th, 2014 · Comments

October 31, 2013

New York, NY—This Week in Pediatric Oncology (TWiPO), the first podcast focusing on pediatric cancer research, announced that Gavin Lindberg is a featured guest on its most recent episode, entitled Effective Advocacy. In this episode, Mr. Lindberg speaks with host Dr. Tim Cripe (Nationwide Children’s Hospital), and co-host Dr. Robyn Dennis (Nationwide Children’s Hospital), about his work to increase funding for childhood cancer research.

Mr. Lindberg is the President and Co-Founder of The Evan’s Victory Against Neuroblastoma (EVAN) Foundation, which was established in memory of his only child Evan Lindberg. Evan bravely battled neuroblastoma for four years before passing away at the age of 7 in 2010. The Foundation funds research aimed at fostering new therapies for children with neuroblastoma, and sponsors patient-wellness programs for childhood cancer patients enduring long and difficult stays in the hospital.

While his son was in treatment, Mr. Lindberg served as the founding president of the Band of Parents, an organization that raised over $1 million to develop a new humanized antibody for neuroblastoma currently used at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in New York City. Mr. Lindberg and his wife Wendy also work to increase awareness of neuroblastoma among policymakers in Washington, DC and have successfully advanced new opportunities for federal support of neuroblastoma research within the Department of Defense.
