What is Neuroblastoma?

Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy, with an incidence of 100 UK cases per annum.   50% of Neuroblastoma cases occur in children younger than two years old.   Neuroblastoma originates in nerve tissues in the neck, chest, abdomen, or pelvis often leaving Children with very little immune system and in great pain.  There are four stages of risk for Neuroblastoma Cancer Children with stage 4 being the most serious with a survival rate of between 40% and 50%.  A majority of the Families of Neuroblastoma Children spend all efforts, time and money on raising funding for treatment.  Treatment for Neuroblastoma is an incredibly harrowing experience for children who are exposed to harsh radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments.  This is why creating that special memory for Neuroblastoma families is so important
