Neuroblastoma is an aggressive form of childhood Cancer.It is a Cancer of the Nervous system that mainly attacks young children and infants. Every year in the UK around 100 children are diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. FAN exist to provide help to all families dealing with Neuroblastoma whether newly diagnosed, in treatment, remission or bereaved.
We provide a wide range of financial assistance for such things as potentially life savings treatments not currently available on the NHS, Integrated therapy support, grants to ease every day expenses and much more. FAN also provides families with free holidays, days out, treats and wishes to help make the Cancer journey better.
FAN spearheads education and awareness campaigns and funds Neuroblastoma research and other supporting work designed to improve outcomes for children here in the UK. In order to do this as effectively as possible we work in collaboration with the NHS. Together, with your help, we will cure Neuroblastoma.
There are many ways you can help FAN to raise funds and awareness. From holding your own fundraising events, getting hands on in our projects, sharing on social media or donating proceeds from eBay sales.
You can even become a supporter of FAN with your own members log in and exclusive benefits.
Megan was born in March 2003, beautiful and perfect in every way and completed our family. For the first few weeks her big brother Joe couldn’t stop looking at her, he was three years old and he thought she was just amazing. Every day Joe would run and fetch nappies and help me with everything I needed to do with Megan.
Thank you to Beth for sharing her story. If you would like to share your story please get in touch at info@familiesagain
