Pioneering science and innovation in cancer research is in our DNA

We’ve seen first hand how even a small breakthrough can make a significant difference in the survival chances of children and young people. That’s why we pour our fundraising into research, working closely with scientists and medical experts to improve diagnosis and find better, kinder treatments. Over the last 35 years, we’ve funded over 300 cancer research projects for children and young people.

Why do we need funding for our projects?
