Objective: The goal of this study is to collect tumour and normal tissue, blood (plasma/serum/buffy coat), skin samples, and bone marrow from patients who are diagnosed with a solid tumour (excluding primary brain) and treated at SickKids. These specimens will be stored in an established long-term repository at SickKids that can be made readily available to conduct future laboratory-based investigations, including clinical, basic, and translational research.
