News & Events News Christmas Appeal 2022 We need your support to help change survival rates of neuroblastoma childhood cancer. Currently only 1 in 2 children survive aggressive neuroblastoma. We need to change this figure to 100% through funding research. With Christmas around the corner, we have put together simple ways that not only fund research but also supports a child with neuroblastoma! Support our Christmas Appeal Your kind donations will help Neuroblastoma Australia to fund a leading research project into neuroblastoma. The project will be selected by our Scientific Advisory Board for its innovation and potential to bring about change, to find better and safer treatments for children diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Each new research project, and each new breakthrough, gives families of children with neuroblastoma hope for a cure, and a promise of better treatment options. Every child deserves the chance to grow up. Donate to Christmas Appeal Gift an Activity Pack - Bring Joy To Children This Christmas Children with neuroblastoma often spend weeks in hospital and are particularly vulnerable due to their immune systems being suppressed by their cancer treatments.

Visit our online shop here Why Your Help Matters Currently, research into childhood cancers is limited and far less funds are invested compared to adult cancers. This is due to childhood cancers generally being rare and not financially profitable for businesses. That’s why we need your help! We need to ensure these children are not overlooked and that promising research gets funded so a cure can ultimately be found for the babies and toddlers diagnosed. Help us fund research so we can drive the change required.
