Children with Cancer is the leading national children’s charity whose mission is to improve survival rates across all types of childhood cancer and support children and their families to live better with and after treatment.

4,500 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK.

Children with Cancer funds research, welfare and campaigning projects to help children with all types of cancer.

Cancer is the most common cause of death in the UK for children aged 1-14 years with around 240 children losing their lives every year  in the UK.

In addition, around 210 young adults (aged 15-24 years) die every year from cancer.

The types of cancer affecting children are quite different from the cancers that affect teenagers and young adults.

Information on types of cancer, treatment, causes and more is available at this link.
