In brief: Yes.!
Most kids with neuroblastoma have widespread disease by the time they're diagnosed.
5-year survival rates have improved from 24% in the 1960's to 38% or higher now, with improved treatments (including autologous bone marrow transplant).

In brief: Yes
Statically, current survival for children over 1 year of age with stage IV neuroblastoma is 25 - 30% based on currently published mature data from large trials.
There are active clinical trials taking place through the children's oncology group and other major ped oncology centers trying to improve on this. Talk with your oncologist about participation in a trial for the most current treatment.

In brief: Yes
The number of survivors in neuroblastoma decrease as the stage increases, but the numbers are increasing as therapy regimens improve.
