Funding for research
Our ability to fund research depends entirely on the kindness and generosity of our many supporters.
We have been blown-away by the enthusiastic support of Coral staff over the last two and a half years. The incredible sums raised by the Coral team are enabling us to fund more research, to speed up the search for more effective, safer treatments for young cancer patients. It’s always a pleasure to be able to take supporters to visit the researchers we are funding, to give them the opportunity to hear first-hand about the research:
“I found the whole experience a little like being on a rollercoaster – one minute feeling huge sadness for those impacted by childhood cancer, unable to avoid putting myself in their shoes. To the next minute, being totally humbled by the commitment, dedication and passion shared by the team in fighting it.
Frankly, thank goodness for amazing people such as Dr Williams, Dr Gasparoli and Dr Hales – the mission is surely all the more likely to succeed with such bright, passionate and motivated people on board.
Before the session I would count myself as an apostle of what Children with Cancer UK are trying to achieve. Now I’m all the more so.”
