Cancer is still the leading cause of non-accidental death among children in the UK. We need your help to give more children the chance of a long, healthy life.
Children diagnosed with cancer often go through lengthy and distressing treatment. Although around 80% of children diagnosed with cancer now survive, treatments often result in long term side effects that limit life expectancy and lead to poor quality of life.
We fund research, carried out at the Wolfson Childhood Cancer Research Centre in Newcastle, to find less distressing and more effective treatments for childhood cancer.
