Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. Our aims are to determine the causes, find cures, improve treatments and provide care for children with cancer.

We were founded in 1988 following the death of 14-year old Paul O’Gorman to leukaemia and, just nine months later, his sister Jean, also to cancer. Before his death Paul’s parents promised to help other children with leukaemia and, today, we fund life-saving research into childhood leukaemia as well as all other forms of other childhood cancers.

We fund life-saving research to improve our understanding of childhood cancer and to find safer, more effective treatments for all young patients.
