Cook Children's Medical Center is doing amazing work in the area of life saving pediatric cancer research. Our mission for the past few years was to raise funds for the new MIBG treatment room that Cooks Children's Medical Center. MIBG is a chemical that mimics certain natural compounds in the body that are concentrated in selective tissues including neuroblastoma cells. 131I is an isotope of iodine that emits powerful radioactive energy, sufficient to kill tumor cells. 131I can be chemically attached to MIBG to form a compound that holds promise for cell-specific treatment of neuroblastoma, only it requires a special lead lined room for the patient. There were only 4 such rooms in the country. Cooks Children's has built the 5th room, and it is the only one in the southwest. It is also the first room of it's kind in the world to be specifically designed for the MIBG treatment.
