As parents who lost their first-born and much loved son to neuroblastoma, we are passionate about funding research in order to improve treatments and survival rates for other children fighting the disease.
Approximately 110 children are diagnosed with neuroblastoma in the UK and Ireland each year. Almost half will die, and those who do survive will suffer the horrific consequences of highly toxic treatment. By investing in research, we can help more children survive and go on to live happy, healthy lives; and with your help that is what we will do.
“Oscar didn’t die because he had cancer; he died because we ran out of options to treat it. By investing in research, we can help more children survive and go on to live happy, healthy lives; and with your help that is what we will do. All money raised by the Oscar Knox Fund will be ring-fenced by Solving Kids’ Cancer to help find and fund promising new therapies for children who are fighting neuroblastoma right now, and in the future.”
Terms and Conditions
The Fund will be held on the following basis (after the deduction of any reasonable expenses, if any):
