Cancer is the leading medical cause of death of those aged between 1 and 24, which amounts to approximately 500 deaths every year. This charity’s mission is to improve the survival rate and improve the lives of young cancer patients. They fund more than 60 research projects at their centres of excellence throughout the United Kingdom.
There are all kinds of ongoing projects that your valuable donations can go towards. These projects take forward their understanding of childhood cancer and give up-to-date information and insights into the treatment of young patients across all forms of cancer.
It is tragic that almost everyone knows someone affected by cancer. The charity is working on raising awareness of childhood cancer, in order for us all to protect current and future generations. The charity also funds welfare projects in order to support families throughout the process of treatment, as it is often the case that children need to spend time away from home, which can be lonely and traumatic.
