I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of Neuroblastoma Australia and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in QBE Run2Cure 2017.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Neuroblastoma Australia, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
Neuroblastoma is the most common solid tumour of childhood arising from particular nerve cells which run in a chain-like fashion up the child’s abdomen and chest and into the skull following the line of the spinal cord. The most common site for the tumour to grow is in the abdomen.
Neuroblastoma is a rare disease with about 40 children diagnosed with neuroblastoma each year in Australia. The average age of children being diagnosed with neuroblastoma is just two years of age and children with the most aggressive form of the disease only have a 50 per cent chance of beating the disease. Neuroblastoma is the number one cause of cancer deaths in children under 5 years of age.
