Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research is a Salford-based charity that funds research into new and improved treatments for children with cancer. Cancer is the leading cause of death in children in the UK. 25% of children diagnosed won’t make it to their 30th birthday. Many of the children who do survive, suffer life-long, life-limiting side effects caused by the treatments used to cure them.
We receive no statutory funding, but with the contributions from the public, volunteers and businesses we fund research to develop new treatments that not only cure children with cancer, but also prevent the side effects of current treatments such organ damage, mobility issues and infertility.
