CAMPAIGN CLOSED - WE HIT OUR GOAL JUST BEFORE THE NEW YEAR RANG IN! THANK YOU!

You can always support our childhood cancer research at https://beatnb.org/

Original campaign info below.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
We have a generous donor who will match ALL funds (up to $50,000!) raised before the end of 2016! TOTAL RAISED OFFLINE SO FAR: $24,850 (GoFundMe doesn't allow us to adjust the total raised to show this).


Beat Nb exists because of two sons. Will was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma at 8 months old, and his family was told there was no chance for survival. 9 years later, Will is playing hockey, largely due to the research Beat Nb continues to fund.

Ezra was diagnosed at 13 months old, and loved trains and dancing. He died the next year, only living 800 days. His parents have been beating nb through funding research ever since.

Beat Nb drives neuroblastoma cancer research and raises awareness, making a difference in kids’ survival today. We want to change the story for the next family by finding viable treatments and ultimately, a cure for neuroblastoma.

Thousands of kids have been affected by the research we're doing, and many are alive today because of it. This work matters, immediately.

WE ARE GETTING TO THIS $50,000! A donor just committed $10,000 (!!!) toward the match! (THANK YOU!) That brings our offline donations to $15,156 toward the match (coming in Thur / Fri / Sat). Combined with what's been given through GoFundMe so far, that's...

$28,621 RAISED!

How close can we get to the $50k match opportunity?!? We're just over $21,000 short of hitting it, with just over 12 hours left in 2016. Some of you can give $10. Some of you can give $10,000. Either way, it matters directly to the hundreds of kids fighting neuroblastoma cancer on our trials right now.

Here's another one of the kids who your help is making a difference for...

"This year... Alice will be 182 days of no evidence of disease. She's 10 pounds heavier...she has finally filled in and has pinchable cheeks. She's getting ready for the Christmas dance/cheer/tumbling program. Yes, she's still in treatment (only 20 months to go!) but she's doing great. We are moving forward...finally. We are able to slowly start giving back. Tonight our 4th Tuesday group will be making supper for the Ronald McDonald House. It feels good to be able to help other families by providing them with a meal. It's not much but it's a start. We have so much to be thankful for.

In the last year we have lost some friends. This will be the first holiday season for those families who had to say goodbye to their child. It's hard to be completely happy when you know you have friends who have one less person to celebrate with. Your heart aches for them."

- Alice's mom, Kristin.

Their family lives in Iowa, and Alice is on the DFMO trial we're helping to fund.

We're just a few dollars short of $10,000 in the first day! Please consider sharing with friends, family, and businesses you know who may be interested in helping Beat Nb save KIDS with cancer with a year-end donation. Again - it'll be DOUBLED!

Here's another story of one of the kids your donations have helped - our friend Caden.

Caden's family had been living in an RV in the Seattle Children's Hospital parking lot away from their Bozeman, Montana home when we met them. They would wind up living there nearly a year and a half, until finally on September 11, 2013, after 17 months of treatment, scans showed that Caden had “no evidence of disease,” and they returned home.

We wandered around the city with them the day we met, sitting in a diner to have a meal and then walking to a nearby park to film some of their story (see https://beatnb.org/why/caden-shrauger/). Our friends from Hey Marseilles joined us and Caden had a blast being "part of the band." He was all smiles and jumping around. His dad, Jason, said it was the best he'd seen Caden in a while.

They had a scary almost-year of inconclusive relapse scans between the summers of 2013 to 2014. Caden is now 8 years old and cancer free. This year he completed the two year DFMO trial we're helping to fund.

We're at over $6,500, and I wanted to share some of the kids' stories who you're helping with your donations! Please share this campaign with your friends to help us get to $50k by Saturday's end.

Delaney is beating neuroblastoma cancer.

She was diagnosed at just 15 days old with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma. Delaney's neuroblastoma was so complex, when the surgeons removed her tumor they had to create a temporary prosthetic mesh lining in place of her abdominal wall. She remained in the PICU for five weeks before starting chemo.

Now, Delaney is three years old, in remission, and on the DFMO trial we're helping to fund.

Their family lives in Clifton Springs, NY.
