Thanks to your support we are currently funding over 50 life-saving research projects around the UK.

Matilda's story

Imagine if you had to tell your child they had cancer. How would you feel? For Matilda’s parents this nightmare became a reality. Thankfully, five years on, Matilda is happy and healthy – but many families are not so lucky.

Your gift today could help fund vital research that will keep more families together, just like Matilda’s.

Kaye Wragg's BBC Radio 4 Appeal

Kaye Wragg, popular actress and star of Holby City, made an appeal on our behalf on BBC Radio 4 in January.

Kaye’s daughter, Matilda, was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was just five years old.

“I’m very proud to say five years on Matilda is now a national gymnastics champion. But not a day goes by when I don’t think about childhood cancer, Matilda and all the other families we met.”

Emma’s Christmas Appeal

At Christmas we asked you think about a child with cancer when choosing gifts for your loved ones.

Christmas should be a magical time for young children but for some, like Emma, it can be a time filled with hospital wards, painful treatments and sleepless nights.

You generously gave to Emma’s Christmas appeal and your gift can help us find better treatments for children with cancer.

Although Christmas has passed, it’s not to late to help a child with cancer.

Please help a child like Emma
