In brief: 30-50% overall

Survival rates today.
Each child's tumor is different and may affect the numbers some. The therapy for stage IV neuroblastoma is very tough and may lead to significant long-term side effects, but we know aggressive treatment is the only chance to cure these children. A decade ago, the chance at long-term survival was <20% but new treatments under study will likely continue to improve these numbers.
