Wristbands To Raise Awareness For Neuroblastoma
Use Custom Wristbands for Neuroblastoma Awareness
Show your support for Neuroblastoma survivors with Neuroblastoma awareness wristbands. Neuroblastoma is a cancer that starts in the nerve cells of children. Considered a rare cancer by adult cancer standards, neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in infants. It accounts for 7% of childhood cancers. Survival rates for neuroblastoma are greatly increased when it is found early, so efforts to increase awareness of neuroblastoma often focus on signs and symptoms. Neuroblastoma awareness bands can help with these efforts.
Neuroblastoma awareness events often correspond with Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September. The recognized awareness color for all childhood cancers is gold.
Why Focus on Neuroblastoma Awareness?
Neuroblastoma affects about 700 kids in the United States each year. There is no known cause of neuroblastoma, though a small percentage of children do inherit a genetic link to the disease. About 2 out of 3 cases of neuroblastoma are discovered after the cancer has metastasized to other parts of the body, decreasing survival rate. Neuroblastoma tumors are most common in the abdomen, neck, and chest. Symptoms related to the pressure of the tumor is what usually leads to diagnosis. Neuroblastoma often spreads to the bones, causing bone pain which may also lead to diagnosis. Neuroblastoma is treated with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
