Our research on children’s cancers
In the 1970s two-fifths of children with cancer survived 5 years after diagnosis. Today, more than 4 in 5 are cured and many of the 33,000 survivors of childhood cancer alive today owe their lives to our research. But we need to do more to bring forward the day when every child survives.
Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens is a campaign with an ongoing mission to raise money for research into cancer in children, teens and young adults. Help us beat childhood cancers sooner.
