Your Christmas gift today could help us find better treatments for children with cancer.
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.
Your gift could fund research into kinder treatments.
By the time her cancer was diagnosed, Emma needed a blood transfusion right away and then high doses of chemotherapy for months before she would be ready for her operation. In the end two operations were needed to remove her tumours.
Emma is now nine years cancer-free, but those years have not been easy for her. As a result of her treatment Emma has severe hearing loss and sight problems and suffers constant aches and pains in her legs and back.
This Christmas you could help fund research into kinder treatments so children can survive cancer without such damaging side-effects.
