Ride2Cure Neuroblastoma

Welcome to Ride2Cure Neuroblastoma on TCN. We’ve worked alongside the amazing Steve Taylor since 2012. He’s simply a beacon of hope in the fight against this brutal illness that takes so many young lives.

Steve is a life long West Brom fan, a Bagie to the core but started following Inverness Caley when he came to work and live in Scotland. He met guys like Jim McGinley and myself online and after a few refreshments in the real world he fell in love with the Celtic supporters ethos of helping those less fortunate.

Some Celtic fans may know Steve from his support and fundraising for Wee Oscar, Vanessa Riddle and Princes Puddle’s and other kids suffering from Neuroblastoma.

Steve is also the guy behind the ‘Highland March’ where Caley supporters would walk to the final away match of the season raising money for charities.

“Ride2Cure is a website dedicated to the warriors who have fought, and continue to fight neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer cancer of the sympathetic nervous system that affects around 100 children each year in the UK.

The majority of children who are diagnosed are under the age of five. Half of all neuroblastoma cases are classified as ‘high-risk’, where the cancer has spread by the time it is diagnosed and immediate treatment is required.

Children diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma have about a 40-50% chance of long-term survival. It has one of the lowest survival rates of any childhood cancer and the causes are not known.

Despite progress in the treatment and understanding of neuroblastoma, survival rates – particularly when it comes to high-risk neuroblastoma – are still unacceptable.

It’s essential that promising developments in research are translated into effective treatment interventions that not only save lives but also offer the maximum quality of life after cancer”.
