Help Kids Battle Cancer

You can beat Neuroblastoma Donate 

What is Neuroblastoma?

Neuroblastoma (NB) is cancer that affects children. It is among the most common childhood tumors, accounting for 15% of all pediatric cancer deaths. NB typically affects kids under five years old and is not usually diagnosed until the tumor grows and presents symptoms. The majority of childhood NB cases are aggressive, showing survival rates of less than 30% with standard chemotherapy, and a disturbing 50% relapse rate. Fewer than 10% of patients can be salvaged after relapsing.

Why is Beat NB Different?

Beat NB was established in 2010 by Patrick Lacey after his son, Will, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at the age of 7 months. Through his experience, Pat encountered firsthand how little hope families, such as his, were given for their child’s survival. After being told on several occasions to make the most of what little time his son had left, Pat met Dr. Giselle Sholler, who shared his belief in Will’s ability to beat the cancer. By using individualized therapeutic strategies, Will has been living a normal, high-quality life, and is still thriving at eleven years old.
