On this website, you will find Our Blog. Dedicated to Charlotte Rufener, this blog was started when her mother, Kristi, was pregnant with her and is still being written in today. Included in the blog is Charlotte’s diagnosis and treatment, as well as how the family is coping with how their life has changed.

Be sure to check out the Features section to see some of the great news stories and articles featuring Charlotte and her battle.

The Galleries page contains pictures and video of Charlotte and her family, both before and after diagnosis. We hope that by viewing this media you can better relate to them, and come to understand how human beings can pull together as a family in a time of crisis.

Meet the Fighters is a page dedicated solely to the children diagnosed with Neuroblastoma who are either currently in treatment, survivors, or children who have lost their battle with this cancer. Each picture contains the courageous story of each child, and their struggle to survive and ultimately overcome their adversity. This page is especially important to us, as the children that are featured are the reason for this website. If you have or know a child you would like displayed on our page, please visit the click here to submit your request.
