WELCOME TO THE EVAN'S VICTORY AGAINST NEUROBLASTOMA FOUNDATION!
Established in Memory of Evan Lindberg in June 2011
Every year in the U.S., 700 parents are told their child has a deadly pediatric cancer called neuroblastoma. About half are diagnosed with stage IV, high risk disease and are given less than a 30% chance to live. Those lucky enough to survive face a lifetime of physical, emotional and developmental challenges due to years of relentless, toxic therapy.
Our son Evan was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma in 2006 at the tender age of 3. We do not know why our special boy developed this insidious disease. We have no family history of neuroblastoma. In fact, we had never heard of this cowardly cancer until our oncologist gave us the devastating news.
Evan was a loving, happy and creative child with limitless potential. He fought with unbelievable courage for over four years before the disease took him and everything he was going to be.
In Evan’s memory, we have dedicated ourselves to defeating neuroblastoma. Just like Evan, The Evan’s Victory Against Neuroblastoma Foundation is fighting for a cure every day.
Incorporated in the state of Maryland as a non-profit organization, our mission is to support the most promising research in the field with the goal of getting desperately needed new therapies in the clinic TODAY. We will also support patient wellness programs aimed at helping young children currently in treatment.
We lost our only child to neuroblastoma. We have not, however, lost the will to help others facing the unthinkable.
