Over 600 children in the United States are diagnosed each year with neuroblastoma, one of the most common pediatric cancers. With no cure for relapsed nb and poor prognoses for high risk cases, one child will die every sixteen hours from the disease.
800days.org is a project of Because of Ezra, an organization that helps educate the public and raise funds to research cures for neuroblastoma and other pediatric cancers. The organization is run by the parents of the late Ezra, who was just 800 days (just over 2 years) old when he died from neuroblastoma. You can see stories people are sharing at their website.
In the video below, Brooke Hester and her mother, Jessica, share their story of fighting neuroblastoma, a children’s cancer. (Joel McHale introduces.)

Through 800days.org and the #800days Twitter hashtag, the group is sharing stories of others affected by the disease and raising awareness. They help fund relevant research and clinical trials to make a difference in the lives of children and families who still have a chance to overcome neuroblastoma.
