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.

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

Creating safer, kinder treatments

Thanks to visionary research that you have helped to fund, survival rate for children affected by leukaemia has risen from 64% to 88%, proof that research really does lead to recovery.

Children with Cancer UK is currently funding more than 50 research projects across the UK; however, we receive no government funding, and only 3% of UK cancer funding goes towards childhood cancer.

Will you help fund life-saving research and give hope to children like Daisy?
