Childhood Cancer


Neuroblastoma is a type of childhood cancer that most commonly originates in the adrenal glands but can also develop in the nerve tissues in the neck, chest, abdomen or pelvis. It is the most common extracranial solid tumor cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy. Neuroblastoma is divided into three risk categories: low, intermediate and high risk. View the 2023 Impact Report.
