By leaving a gift of any size in your Will, you can help ensure that children and young people facing cancer get to the future they deserve.
Research is already helping more children survive their cancer diagnosis. For example, after twenty years and over £3m of funding, the Minimal Residual Disease (MRD)* trials that we helped to fund were so successful that the NHS has now adopted the test as standard treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). This has helped push the 10 year survival rate from 80% to 95%. Proof that research really does save lives. Unfortunately, the survival rates for other types of childhood cancer are much lower. Over the last 30 years, we have been focusing our funding on research that is aimed at finding better treatments and cures for harder-to-treat cancers with lower survival rates, such as brain tumours.
