We all have dreams of the person we want to be and what we want in life.

For some children, their dreams are interrupted and sometimes shattered, by a cancer diagnosis. 

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, we want them to have the best possible chance of surviving and of going on to lead a full life.

As part of our Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we asked children and young people with cancer what they want to be when they grow up. Here you can see some of the hopes and dreams these children have for their future, and find out more about their stories.

Will you help us spread awareness of childhood cancer by sharing these stories? Help us throughout September by sharing using the hashtag #WhenIGrowUpCCAM across all social media channels.
