Neuroblastoma is a rare and aggressive childhood cancer – the most common cancer of the first year of life – and accounts for 15% of childhood cancer deaths. Around 100 children will be diagnosed with this disease each year in the UK. The Neuroblastoma Society funds vital research into the causes of neuroblastoma, seeking new and better treatments which will improve survival rates and lessen the drastic side effects. We are run entirely by voluntary effort enabling around 95% of all donations to go directly to grants for research. We rely on your generosity to fund the research which will make a difference to all children with neuroblastoma.
