Neuroblastoma is the leading cause of death of children under five from cancer.
Currently, only 50% of those diagnosed with aggressive neuroblastoma will survive five years after diagnosis – and a third of those children that do survive, will have long term side effects from their treatments.
Neuroblastoma Australia is focused on changing these outcomes and funding research which will lead to more effective and less harmful treatments for this childhood cancer.
More vital research needs to be undertaken in this area and to ensure neuroblastoma attracts some of the brightest young research talent, we aim to provide financial support for young scientists focusing on this childhood cancer.
As a relatively overlooked and underfunded research area, we rely heavily on the support of the community to help make this support a reality.
We thank you in advance for your generous donation – every donation, no matter how small or big will make a difference.
