Our appeals help fund life-saving research for children and young people with cancer.
Thanks to your support we are currently funding over 50 life-saving research projects around the UK.

Give hope to children facing cancer amid COVID-19 uncertainty

As we face the uncertainty due to the Coronavirus pandemic, what does remain certain is that 12 children and young people will be diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.

We want to ensure that during the worrying months that lie ahead, we can continue to give hope to young cancer patients and their families.

Please help us to support children with cancer through these uncertain times.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Appeal

Cancer is the leading cause of death in children under the age of 15 in the UK. So whenever a child receives a cancer diagnosis, we want to make sure they have the best possible chance of survival by finding cures and better treatments through the ground-breaking research we fund. But we can’t do this alone.

Cancer is standing in the way of children’s futures. Together we can help change that.

Finding kinder, safer and more effective treatments.

Ceylian was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma in 2017.  Unfortunately, chemotherapy is no longer an option for Ceylian as it’s proved to be ineffective. The hope is he can receive a new genome treatment which is more tailored and targeted.

Please support us so we can help children like Ceylian by investing in high quality childhood cancer research that would otherwise go unfunded.

The Beads of Courage UK appeal

We’re raising £200,000 for the Beads of Courage UK oncology programme to support children, like Ted, who go through difficult treatment journeys.

Beads of Courage UK is an essential support programme that helps children cope with serious illnesses by awarding them a bead at every stage of treatment. This helps them to feel rewarded for completing different treatments and gives them a physical representation of their journey.

This year, 4,500 families will be given the devastating news that their child has cancer. A donation from you today can help ensure that each of these families will be supported by the Beads of Courage UK oncology programme
