Pat Lacey and Kyle Matthews lead Beat Nb. Kyle serves as Executive Director, while Pat is President of the Board. Both are fathers of sons with neuroblastoma, and directed separate nonprofits with a shared mission before merging in 2016.
Their shared passion has driven over $6m in research dollars, changing the nb story with novel treatments and innovative options. Our team works closely with doctors, researchers, families, and advocates across the world to Beat Nb.
Yvette Pullara, Operations Manager. If it can be described using the word "data" - Yvette's on it.
If you've supported our mission through a donation, you've received a handwritten letter from Yvette saying thanks!
AJ Hurley, Creative Director. AJ creates the videos and photographs Beat Nb releases.
A storyteller at heart, AJ introduces you to kids fighting cancer, those fighting alongside them, and more.
