We want to find better ways to detect tumors early. We would also like to find ways to prevent the tumors from starting. To do this, we need more information about childhood tumors. Some research looks at diseases that are passed on in families (called genetic research). Research done with your specimens may look for genetic causes and signs of disease. The overall goals of this study are to collect samples of tumor, blood and bone marrow; keep these samples carefully in long term storage; and make these samples available for research studies.
