Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens is a campaign that raises money for research into cancers affecting children and young people.

We need your help to find new, better and kinder treatments.

Around 4,500 children and young people (aged 0-24) are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK*. Survival for this group has improved over the last 40 years, meaning today, more children and young people are surviving cancer than ever before.

But we need to do more. Around 520 children and young people die from cancer every year in the UK, while those who survive often experience serious long-term side effects.

By supporting Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens, you can help us find new, better and kinder treatments for children and young people with cancer.
