How Does Beat NB Help?
Since its inception, Beat NB has raised nearly $2 million to help fund the discovery of new, effective therapies to increase survival and decrease the mortality associated with neuroblastoma. To accomplish this, our work supports the NMTRC, a national translational research consortium – funded through the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids Michigan – which is dedicated to finding a cure for kids with cancer. This fund is supported by many nonprofits, groups, annual events, and families, all sharing the same mission – to BEAT NB.
The founder of Beat NB cancer foundation, Patrick Lacey, recently shared a 2015 yearend summary, highlighting the accomplishments of our organization over just one year. Our efforts are also summed up nicely in this presentation he gave at the NMTRC conference in 2011.
