Supporting families of children with cancer

Childs drawing of a house

More than 70 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every week in the UK.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it can be a frightening experience for the whole family. Treatment normally starts immediately, is often given many miles from home and can last for several years.

At Children with Cancer UK, we fund innovative welfare projects to provide better care and practical support for young cancer patients and their families.
