A child dies from neuroblastoma every 10 days. Help us to defeat the disease and support the families fighting it.
How you can help
You can either donate today or start organising your own fundraising activity. It can be as simple or as extravagant as you like. Here are some of our favourite ideas:
- Do ‘something’ challenging every 10 days to highlight how often a child dies from neuroblastoma. This could be anything from holding a dress down day at work to going without your guilty pleasure
- Take part in a challenge event (see TimeOutdoors for ideas, or make up your own)
- Organise an event such as a coffee morning, pub quiz or bake sale
If you fundraise for us, you’ll receive;
- Fundraising tips and advice
- One-to-one support from our friendly and professional fundraiser
- Access to free fundraising materials including a sponsorship form, t-shirt, wristbands and balloons
Neuroblastoma: a devastating childhood cancer
The survival rate for neuroblastoma is 67%; much lower than the average across all childhood cancers (83%). Worse still, children diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma (around half of all cases) have a 30-40% chance of survival – the odds are stacked against them from the beginning. If children relapse or don’t respond to standard treatment, any future treatment is through clinical trials (research studies). Many children simply run out of options to treat their disease.
This is why we exist. We work to identify and fund clinical research to improve children’s access to potential new treatment options that are less toxic, with the hope of finding a cure for future generations.
By supporting our campaign you’ll be helping to save more lives, ensuring that families are supported to fight this disease every step of the way.
