Fundraising for Children with Cancer UK
Children with Cancer UK is the leading national charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. Our aims are to determine the causes, find cures and provide care for children with cancer.
• We fund life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer.
• We fund innovative welfare projects to provide better care for young cancer patients, and their families.
• We campaign to raise awareness of childhood cancer, to protect more children and to improve the lives of young cancer patients, today and for future generations.
Our work started when parents made a promise to their dying son. In November 1986, Paul was diagnosed with leukaemia. He died just nine weeks later. He was fourteen years old. Just nine months later his sister, Jean, was also lost to cancer.
Before his death, Paul’s parents promised to help other children with leukaemia, so no other child would have their life cut short by this dreadful disease. We work tirelessly to keep this promise – and, today, we work to give children a better chance in their fight against all types of cancer.
Over the past 25 years, what started as a small memorial foundation has become a major force in paediatric oncology, helping to drive childhood leukaemia (the most common childhood cancer) survival rates up to over 80%. Tragically, this is not true for other forms of childhood cancer.
