Childhood cancers: Support research for treatments with fewer side effects

Last updated: 24/04/2014

Why this research is needed

Children playing Every year 1,600 children are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. In the 1960s, only around a quarter of children with cancer survived. Today, almost three quarters are cured and Cancer Research UK continues to lie at the heart of this amazing progress.

But we need to do more to ensure that more children beat the disease and that they are able to live their lives with fewer side effects from their treatment.

The impact of our work

We're a major funder of research into children's cancer in the UK and our scientists have been at the heart of advances in the treatment of childhood cancer including leukaemia, hepatoblastoma, lymphomas and Wilm's tumour.

With your support we can continue to research ways to improve treatments, making them more effective with fewer side effects, to help save even more lives in the future.
