Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People

Different challenges, same determination - Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People

Cancer in children and young people (aged 0–24) is different to cancer in adults – from the types of cancer, to the impact of treatment and the long-term side effects survivors often experience.

Through medical research, we’re determined to overcome some of the different challenges these cancers present and improve survival and long-term outcomes for children and young people with cancer.
