Niamh’s Next Step was set up as a lasting legacy to Niamh who lost her 18-month battle with neuroblastoma aged just five in May 2012.

Since then, her mum and dad Sam and Chris Curry have been raising awareness of neuroblastoma as well as raising money to fund vital research into the disease which is not currently funded by the NHS or the Government.
