Over 60% of children with High-Risk Neuroblastoma will relapse and survival figures are less than 15% when they do. The Bivalent Vaccine, which is available at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York, America would increase survival percentages after relapse to 91% and helps keep the cancer from returning. Unfortunately, this option is not available in the UK so, Eden’s Army, are working towards raising £280,000 to access the Bivalent vaccine from in America. To help raise these funds Kirklees is aiming to turn itself Pink on Thursday 10th March which is also Eden’s 7th birthday as pink is her favourite colour.
