Sadly, Neuroblastoma research, along with other children’s cancers, has been very underfunded, and as such, some cancers like Neuroblastoma still have a very poor prognosis. Children with ‘High Risk’ NB have just a 40% chance of survival. That is unacceptable to us and we will not stop fighting until all children survive this horrible disease.
Research is expensive. Thanks to all your incredible fundraising, awareness raising and fantastic support. We are enormously proud to tell you that we have now begun funding research at Bristol University, in partnership with our friends at Neuroblastoma UK. The study is "A novel target for destabilisation of the MYCN oncoprotein." This project comes after several earlier projects supported by other great charities and so far the results are looking incredibly promising!!
We thank you all for standing with us, for running, baking, donating, making, sharing posts, rollerskating, raffling and a whole host of other wonderful activities to raise funds. We couldn't do it without you!!!
If you are now inspired to help us in some way then please do get in touch. Let's get together and see how many ways we can help Siddy Smile!
