We raise and invest money for vital, specialist research into the causes of and treatments for childhood cancer. Often, the high-quality projects that can make a real difference to childhood cancer patients’ lives are left unfunded. The money you raise for Children with Cancer UK helps to improve childhood cancer survival rates and keep families together for longer.
