On 22 September 2019, as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Tracey Espin from Durham, gathered her friends and family together for a fundraising walk in memory of Siobhan Mather. Siobhan was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma in July 2017, when she was just two years old.
We are providing funding of over £116,000 to Dr Olga Piskareva and her team at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). In this project, Dr Piskareva aims to use 3D printing technology to engineer a novel experimental model and study the biology, and subsequent treatment of, neuroblastoma. “Thanks to funding from Neuroblastoma UK and its dedicated supporters...we hope to develop more effective treatments for children with neuroblastoma, with more tolerable side-effects.”
On Wednesday 11 September 2019, Neuroblastoma UK patron and comedian Alan Carr took to the trading floor at the 15th annual BGC Charity Day, to help raise vital funds for neuroblastoma research. Alan was joined by the two wonderful families of Evie and Florence, who were both diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2015.
Neuroblastoma UK’s Chair of Trustees, Tony Heddon and the Charity’s Secretary, Shirley Clark took part in the Thames Bridges Trek on Saturday 7th September, raising over £1,600 for neuroblastoma research.
Shirley, along with Tony and his family, were “#GoingGold for Joanna”, walking in memory of Shirley’s daughter who sadly passed away in 1995, aged eight, after being diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
