Neuroblastoma UK

We fund vital research into neuroblastoma to find new and better treatments

Story

In August 2012 my 5 year old nephew, Joe was diagnosed with High Risk Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. He is now being treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital where he is having to endure numerous rounds of chemotheraphy which will be followed by surgery to remove his tumour & more high dose chemotheraphy. All we can hope is that this treatment kills off all traces of the disease however Joe will then face months of radiotheraphy & immunotheraphy in addition to a stem cell transplant all of which is aimed at preventing a possible relapse.

Neuroblastoma is one of the rarest & most aggressive of Child Cancers. Fund raising and donations are the life blood of the Neuroblastoma Society's efforts to find better treatments & a cure. Please find it in your heart to donate to this important cause which could potentially save not just Joe but all the other children who are forced to suffer this horrendous disease.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please please dig deep and help me to help Joe & all other children like him.
