No parent should ever have to hear, "There is nothing we can do. Take your child home and make memories because they will be your last."
Kellen’s Krusade is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for relapsed neuroblastoma though raising awareness and funding cutting edge research. We are committed to supporting clinical trials to reduce the number of children affected by relapsed neuroblastoma, increase survival rates and minimize long term medical and psychological effects from treatments.
Neuroblastoma is a childhood cancer that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. It is an extremely aggressive cancer with a survival rate of less than 60% with current treatment modalities. After initial treatment, there is a 50% chance of relapse and there is no known cure for relapsed neuroblastoma.
The most hated word in the world of neuroblastoma is “rare.” “Rare” is the reason there is not enough research being done. “Rare” is the reason there aren’t drugs being developed. “Rare” is the reason there is so little funding. “Rare” is why our kids don’t have more options.
