Blair Foundation Fights Neuroblastoma
Help Kids Fight Cancer
Our mission is to support funding for neuroblastoma research and treatment development in the hope that one day a cure will be found.
We never expected that our smiling, happy little girl would go to the doctor with a limp and find out two days later that she had neuroblastoma, an aggressive and difficult to treat childhood cancer. Catherine began what was to be a grueling four and a half year journey in a fight for her life. Though her life was short - barely eight years - it was full of joy as well as pain. In honor of her strength and courage and fierce determination to live, we created her foundation to carry on her name and her fight. We hope you will join with us for the children who will still travel this road until a cure is found.
We recently visited Dr. Colin Correnti and the immunotherapy lab at Fred Hutch in Seattle where we gave a grant in December 2018.
