Every day, 12 families in the UK will be given the news that their child has cancer.

For this year’s World Cancer Day, we asked families affected by childhood cancer to share their stories. These detail their journeys, as well as showing why it’s so important to donate, helping to fund breakthrough research and keep families together.

If you’ve been touched by their stories, learn more about how you can get involved with the charity here, or donate below.
