Equally important in raising public awareness is the role of advocacy, with efforts led by a group of remarkably dedicated advocates. Information is available from the group R.M.C. at RMCsupport.org and the Chris Johnson Foundation at chrisjohnsonfoundation.org. Other efforts are underway to engage and educate at-risk groups. A second meeting of the RMC Alliance, open to all interested parties, is scheduled to be held in conjunction with the 49th Congress of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology on October 12 in Washington, DC.
