Evie’s story

Evie was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2015, when she was just two years old. She got the all clear in March 2017 and this September, Evie celebrates her 6th birthday.

About neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma is a rare cancer that affects around 100 children each year in the UK. It usually affects children under the age of five, and can occur before a child is born.

Funding research. Saving young lives.

By funding leading research projects, we can help scientists to deliver new, effective and kinder treatments for children with neuroblastoma.

We support clinical and near-clinical research and drug development that has the potential to lead to improved treatment protocols. We also support basic research that improves our understanding of how neuroblastomas develop and become malignant since this may lead to novel, more effective approaches to treatment.

Investing nearly £2 million
in neuroblastoma research

Neuroblastoma UK is supporting nine new research studies this year, with a total funding of £1.177 million.

Research ranges from studies to understand the development of neuroblastoma to research that aims to develop new therapeutic approaches and treatment.

Funding research to develop more effective immunotherapy

With Niamh’s Next Step and The Bradley Lowery Foundation, we are funding Dr Juliet Gray’s research into antibody immunotherapy at the University of Southampton.

Find out more about Dr Gray and how her work could help deliver more effective immunotherapies.
