Our research on children’s cancers

In the 1960s fewer than three in ten children with cancer survived. Today, nearly eight in ten 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.
