Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Join with us to raise awareness and funds this September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Each year, 950 children and adolescents in Australia – and 175,000 children worldwide – are diagnosed with cancer*. Neuroblastoma is a childhood cancer which claims more lives of children under the age of 5 than any other cancer. The average survival rate for aggressive neuroblastoma is only 50%. We need to improve treatments to make them more effective and less toxic for children. The way to do this is through research.

What can you do to help?

Join with us to raise awareness and funds for neuroblastoma childhood cancer during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It’s on during September and you may see some buildings in your area lit in gold to show community support. You can help by donating now, setting up your own community event or by buying gold wristbands (adult $4, child $3 inclusive of postage). Every dollar counts towards a cure!

  • Click here to donate now.
  • To purchase gold wristbands, visit our online shop.
  • To set up your own community event such as a cake stall, morning tea or personal challenge you can set up your own fundraising page here. We’d love to know if you are fundraising for us so please email Lucy.Jones@nb.org.au.
