At Solving Kids' Cancer, we fight for a future where no child dies of neuroblastoma or suffers due to its treatment. Neuroblastoma is a rare but and aggressive paediatric cancer that affects around 100 children each year in the UK. Approximately 50% of those children will have the high-risk form of neuroblastoma, which has a very high relapse rate and a survival rate which has remained at or below 40%.
We are there for families of children affected by neuroblastoma, providing support throughout their cancer journey and helping them with the widespread challenges they face. We provide specialist information to help families choose the best treatment options for their child and to access treatment if its not available on the NHS.
We also enable innovative clinical research to give children fighting the disease access to the best treatment options closer to home. We do all of this so that children have a better chance of beating this aggressive disease once and for all, and we are determined to find a cure for future generations.
We are proud to be working with, and supported by, Howes Percival Leicester as their chosen Charity of the Year for 2019. We are grateful for their dedication to raising funds and donating their time and expertise so that we can bring forward the day when no child dies of neuroblastoma or suffers due to its treatment.
Thank you for your support.
