Fundraising for treatment

High-risk neuroblastoma is an aggressive cancer with high rates of relapse. At relapse, the chance of survival is extremely low. Some families affected by high-risk neuroblastoma will choose to fundraise for access to treatment that is not available through the NHS, to try to get their child back into remission, or to try to keep their cancer away. Solving Kids' Cancer UK fully supports parent choice and therefore, helps families with fundraising campaigns for recognised and approved clinical trials or treatments. In the first instance, we always encourage families to discuss their child's treatment with their child's UK consultant.

Treatment options outside of the UK can often cost hundreds of thousands of pounds and raising this level of funds is a huge additional burden on families. This is why supporting families to set up and oversee their fundraising campaign is an important aspect of our support provision. Solving Kids' Cancer UK also helps families with the challenges and logistics of accessing treatment overseas.

If you'd like more information about fundraising campaigns for access to treatment, contact us on 0207 284 0800 or email fundraising@solvingkidscancer.org.uk.

Current fundraising campaigns 

We are currently supporting a number of children and families to fundraise for access to treatment. Click through to learn more about each child's story and to make a donation.  

Donations made to children's fundraising campaigns will go towards supporting the child and family to access treatment and with any pastoral needs. If a child and family no longer needs the funds or a child is in remission five years post the end of successful treatment, the funds will be used to support other children and families affected by neuroblastoma through Solving Kids' Cancer UK's activities. If you'd like more information about fundraising for access to treatment generally, or about any of the children's fundraising campaigns below, contact us on 0207 284 0800 or email fundraising@solvingkidscancer.org.uk.

Thank you for supporting children and families!
