While other babies were learning to roll, laugh, babble and
crawl, young Huey was enduring bout after bout of chemotherapy.
At just 10 weeks old, Huey was diagnosed with neuroblastoma
when doctors discovered a five-centimetre solid tumour, was slowly crushing the
very breath from his tiny body.
The cancer soon spread to Huey’s liver, causing it to swell
five times its normal size. Doctors worried Huey’s liver would fail without
Our research recently made a significant breakthrough that has real potential to change the way we treat neuroblastoma.
Your support can help us take it to the next step: a clinical trial for children.

“It’s not just the immediate family it affects, it’s the
ripple effect through employers, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunties,
uncles, friends…” – Lindsay, Huey’s dad.
After seven months and eight rounds of chemotherapy, Huey’s
treatment finally ended. But an MRI showed the disease still clings to his
carotid artery, an area which is inoperable; his neuroblastoma may return.
Neuroblastoma may not be as well-known as other types of
cancer, like leukaemia. But it claims more lives of children under five than
any other cancer.
Please give generously to help children with high-risk neuroblastoma.
