It’s important to Solving Kids’ Cancer that we work closely with other charities that offer support, distribute useful information and fund research in neuroblastoma. Here’s a list of useful links to other organisations that share our goal of improving the lives of everyone affected by neuroblastoma.
Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG)
CCLG coordinates research and care for children and their parents. There are 21 CCLG specialist centres for the treatment of childhood cancer and leukaemia, covering all areas of the UK and Ireland (there’s a map of the centres on the website). The website also has information about the CCLG, childhood cancer and leukaemia.
