Stories of hope

We know the value of hope to families facing their toughest challenge and helping to provide hope to families is a central part of Solving Kids' Cancer UK's mission. 

Among the incredibly sad stories, there are also stories of hope, which we are pleased to be able to share and celebrate with you. The stories featured here, shared with permission, are of children and young people who have been diagnosed with neuroblastoma, have completed treatment and are now in remission and doing the things they enjoy most in life.

Some of the children and young people below would have fundraised with Solving Kids' Cancer UK, for access to treatment not available through the NHS and many will have gone on to access and complete treatment overseas. Some families have chosen to keep their child's dedicated fund open for donations. Up until the point at which a child reaches five years post the end of treatment, all funds raised are held for the child for access to treatment and pastoral needs. After this point, funds raised in a child's name are used to support all children and families affected by neuroblastoma through Solving Kids' Cancer UK's activities. If you'd like more information, contact us on 0207 284 0800 or email
