The Natalie & Sienna Bands: In Support of Neuroblastoma in Kids
70% of the proceeds from the sale of the Natalie & Sienna Bands go to Neuroblastoma Australia, an aggressive children's cancer. Every band also plants 10 trees.
The Natalie Band is named after one of the charity’s supporters who shows unbelievable energy and compassion for the cause.
The Sienna Band is named after the inspiration of the charity, Sienna Hoffmann. Sienna loved pink and loved to play with play jewellery and had a real zest for life.
The design of these bands by Bands of Courage, is inspired by the frangipani flower, the logo for the registered charity Neuroblastoma Australia which supports research into the aggressive childhood cancer neuroblastoma. The frangipani flower is symbolic in many cultures and for the charity it is a symbol of hope for all the children affected by this cancer.
Neuroblastoma cancer mainly affects young children with the average age of diagnosis being just two years old. It is a cancer which results from immature nerve cells developing incorrectly. It is not known why it occurs. With survival rates of aggressive neuroblastoma just being 50%, more research is urgently needed to find a definitive cure for this devastating disease.
This band supports Neuroblastoma Australia's mission of funding leading research to develop better, safer and kinder treatments so all children get the chance to grow up.
Thank you very much for supporting.
