It is hard to imagine what it must be like to be told your child has cancer, but every day 12 families in the UK receive this devastating news.

Read the journeys of some of the many families affected by childhood cancer. Each story is special highlighting their own ups and downs, and the daily battle that children and their families have to go through from diagnosis to treatment.

With your help we can move towards a brighter future where treatments are safer and kinder, and no family loses their child to cancer.

Have you or a family member been affected by childhood cancer? Many of our supporters have been affected by childhood cancer – either through family, friends or their own personal experience. These patient stories can help inspire others to get involved with us, or can support our media work.
