in a group of 70 kids
about 31 will survive
about 39 will die
Laura Sypek, affectionately called “Loopy” by her family, was a vibrant and courageous 6th grade student when neuroblastoma, a solid tumor childhood cancer, took her life in 2006. Diagnosed at the age of 2, she battled this disease for most of her life. Despite her age, she actively raised money for cancer research. Soupy for Loopy Foundation exists to continue Laura’s quest for a cure by raising awareness of neuroblastoma and money to fund research into treatment and ultimately a cure. When we began our journey in 2007, the 5-year survival rate was about 30%. Today, it is about 40% to 50% for high-risk neuroblastoma (American Cancer Society).
