Every day more than
10 children and young people
are diagnosed with cancer in the UK
8 out of 10
young patients can be successfully treated due to research we helped fund
We need to develop
safer, kinder & more effective
therapies with fewer toxic side effects
Out of every £100 spent on cancer research in the UK,
is spent on research into childhood cancer
We fund life-saving research to improve our understanding of childhood cancer and to find safer, more effective treatments for all young patients.
We campaign and raise awareness of childhood cancer, to protect more children and give more young cancer patients a brighter future.
We fund welfare projects to help children and families in their fight against childhood cancer.
Childhood cancers are different to adult cancers and need their own research. Although they have names that say they’re a cancer, the vast majority of them are unique to childhood.
Cancer is still the most common medical cause of death in children and young people – claiming over 500 young lives each year.
As a children’s charity, we want to find safer, more effective treatments for all young patients.
The O’Gorman family was shattered when brother and sister, Paul and Jean, fell victim to cancer within nine months of each other.14 year old Paul died in February 1987, only nine weeks after his initial diagnosis of leukaemia in 1986. Before Paul died he asked his parents, Eddie and Marion O’Gorman to help other children with leukaemia. His sister Jean – in defiance of her cancer, had started to raise funds for children with leukaemia in her brother’s memory – died just nine months later that November.
