“ A charity set up for Neuroblastoma, an extremely agressive childhood cancer. „
Every year 100 children in the UK are diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. Most of them are given just a 20% chance of being alive 5 years later, and during that time they go through, nothing short of hell. Although only 6-10% of all childrens cancer cases are Neuroblastoma, it accounts for 15% of all the deaths.
Most children go through endless rounds of chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell transplants, radiation, then 6 months of oral chemo. Some times it works but most children relapse, and there is nothing more that can be done, its aggressive and spreads rapidly.
The aim of Abbie's Fund is simple "Make my cancer survivable". It funds research into Neuroblastoma as its down to charities to try to find a cure, the government doesn't give a single penny into research for this disease. .
Abbie's Fund was inspired by a little girl called Abbie, who despite a long battle kept going with a zest for life, you can read a tribute to her on their website- make sure you have your tissues ready.
