How we're funding children's cancer research

In the UK in the early 1970s, just 4 in 10 children with cancer survived for at least five years. Today, that’s more than 8 in 10 – more children than ever are surviving cancer thanks to the work of Cancer Research UK.
But every day, around 11 young people in the UK are still diagnosed with cancer. Our doctors, nurses and scientists are working hard to develop better, kinder treatments for children with cancer, to help reduce side effects that can cause problems later in life.
Each year, thanks to research funded by donations like yours, hundreds of children with cancer can look forward to a brighter future.
