Lillie’s Friends Festival and 5K
We were happy to brave the wet and cold today to support an amazing event– Lillie’s Friends Festival and 5K. Lillie’s Friends passionately provides families with real hope by raising neuroblastoma awareness, funding innovative research toward a cure, and supporting families experiencing the ‘crisis of belief’ that accompanies their child’s neuroblastoma diagnosis.
Neuroblastoma is a rare cancer of the sympathetic nervous system – a nerve network that carries messages from the brain throughout the body. Each year there are about 700 new cases in the United States. It is usually found in young children under the age of five, though it may rarely occur in older children and adults.
Thank you to all of the sponsors, volunteers, organizers, Winston-Salem Police Officers and Lillie’s parents and friends for making the event so special and inspirational!
