Newly diagnosed

Learning that your child has neuroblastoma can be very frightening and overwhelming. At this time, it is completely normal to feel scared, confused or helpless. It is likely that you will have been faced with lots of information in a short space of time, and your child may have very quickly started treatment. 

Our Family Support team is here to help if your child has recently been diagnosed with neuroblastoma and you are facing this situation. We are here for every family, to provide emotional, practical, and financial support throughout your journey. Our team are all parents whose children have been affected by neuroblastoma, so they truly understand the struggles and challenges that families face. This lived experience makes them perfectly placed to guide and support you and your family at your time of need.

Coping with diagnosis

"Solving Kids’ Cancer UK came into our lives within the first few weeks of Flora being diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. All of a sudden we were thrust into a world so far from what we knew, and our lives filled with fear and uncertainty. They became a safe space for us to talk with people who really understood the position our family were now in. They offered us support and advice, and have now become a lifeline in the moments we really need clarity."
