Learn about cancer

We have a wealth of information available about the various types of childhood cancer, including the different treatments available for each type and the potential side effects of these treatments. Advances in treatment and care have dramatically improved the outlook for young cancer patients, however, despite a wealth of research much uncertainty remains over the causes of childhood cancers.

To save children’s lives, research is essential.

Childhood cancers are different to adult cancers and need their own research. Most childhood cancers are unique to children.

At Children with Cancer UK we want to find safer, more effective treatments for all young patients. Cancer is still the most common medical cause of death in children and young people. Our focus as a children’s cancer charity is to fund visionary research and bring the breakthroughs that will bring hope to children and their families.
