Our little superhero, Ethan, started battling neuroblastoma at the age of 22 months. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, with a tumour on his adrenal gland and a secondary tumour on his lower spine. There was no improvement after the child endured three months of intensive chemotherapy, so he was placed on an immunotherapy clinical trial before receiving a double bone marrow transplant.

 He fought hard over a 12 month period, but unfortunately the devastating cancer took over his body very aggressively in February this year. He was given less than a 50 per cent chance to live and Ethan sadly lost his battle to Neuroblastoma on 18-02-2022.

In a bid to make better treatment options more accessible for future patients, Ethan's family is trying to help Neuroblastoma Australia raise $200,000 at the upcoming Run2Cure event on April 3 — the first event since the Covid-19 pandemic began.

Ethan's story was covered on The Project to highlight the importance of raising awareness and funds for this devastating cancer - neuroblastoma that only affects children, mostly under 5 year olds.

The funds raised at the event would help support our next round of research grants where the most innovative and leading research projects are selected by our Scientific Advisory Board.
