Neuroblastoma is one of the most aggressive forms of cancer that can affect children. Every year 25 to 30 children in the Netherlands are diagnosed with neuroblastoma. More than half of the cases involve high-risk neuroblastoma. 65 to 70 percent of the children with the heaviest form do not survive. A bleak and unfair perspective.
The fight against neuroblastoma is an uncertain and long way, for the patients and their families and for the researchers working on healing. Villa Joep only stops when there is a life-saving therapy against neuroblastoma. That moment is slowly approaching, knowledge about the causes and effective treatment is growing day by day.
On the 9th of May in 2020, I will join the 1Legion team to do the Strong Viking obstacle run, with a total distance of 7 kilometers and numerous obstacles to overcome.
We are doing this not only for our own fun, but we want to help in the fight against neuroblastoma. With overcoming the Strong Viking run, we want to collect money that can be used in the research against neuroblastoma.
