Our research on children’s cancers

In the 1960s less than a quarter of children with cancer survived. Today, three quarters are cured and many of the 33,000 survivors of childhood cancer alive today who 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.
