September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Sadly, every week in the UK, two families are told that their child has neuroblastoma, a rare and life-threatening cancer. Join us this September and help fund vital research into neuroblastoma.

Inspiration and information
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.
Your support makes a big difference to children like Evie.
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.

Carolyn lost her daughter, Florence to neuroblastoma in 2017, when she was just 2.5 years old.

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.
