join our family in the fight against neuroblastoma
Cancer is a word everyone knows, and a word no one wants to hear. Certain cancers are common household names. Most people have heard of leukemia, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Neuroblastoma, on the other hand, is mysterious to many. Wade's Army was founded by the Welbourn and DeBruin families to recruit others to use their Power for good and bring the fight to this pediatric cancer.
We believe that the only way to conquer this extremely aggressive childhood cancer is to give it a name. Join the fight by getting people-beyond the medical community and those of us who have suffered in its wake-realize neuroblastoma actually exists.
No one at any age deserves to get cancer, but when a cancer targets toddlers, it turns our word inside out. The average age children are diagnosed with Neuroblastoma is 22 months (before most have even been potty trained). It's the most common cancer in infants, affecting almost twice as many babies as leukemia. And more than 95% of children with Neuroblastoma are diagnosed by the age of 10. There are about 700 cases of the disease each year in the United States alone.
Awareness is the first step in action: join the fight online!
