27 years of saving young lives

16 November 2015

We've been fighting cancer, giving hope and saving lives since we were founded in 1988.

Fighting cancer

Almost 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. That's ten every day - including babies like Rose.

Rose Kelly was diagnosed with leukaemia when she was a babyNot so long ago, a diagnosis of the blood cancer leukaemia was a virtual death sentence. Today, 88% of children with leukaemia survive.

Thanks to major advances in research and treatment funded by Children with Cancer UK, Rose is a happy, healthy little girl.  Sadly, this is not true for children with other types of cancer.

We want to help more children like Rose. With your support, we can fight childhood cancer.

Since 1988, thanks to your support, we have raised over £180 million to to fund pioneering research.

We rely entirely on voluntary donations from supporters like you to continue the fight against childhood cancer. From making a one off donation to taking part in a marathon, there are so many ways you can and do support our work and save young lives.
