Neuroblastoma is a rare and aggressive childhood cancer. About a hundred children in the UK are diagnosed each year. The Society works exclusively for these children in raising funds for British research into the disease, and offering information and support for anyone affected by neuroblastoma.
Every day 10 families are told their child has cancer. As the UK's leading children's cancer charity, CLIC Sargent is the only organisation to offer them all round care and support. That’s because we’re there every step of the way.
It is a sad fact of life that some children diagnosed with cancer do not qualify for funding in certain situations by the National Health Service, but this charity is designed to help children to get life saving treatment for their cancers and tumours.
The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to providing support to families affected by retinoblastoma. Our support workers are here to help families get through diagnosis and treatment, and are available during clinics or later by phone and email. Through our linking service, we can put people in touch with others who share a similar experience. Our CHECT networks also organise family get-togethers.
The CCLG is a national professional body responsible for the organisation of the treatment and management of children with cancer in the UK. As an association of healthcare professionals involved in their care, CCLG works to benefit children through development of the highest standards of care, as well as promotion of research. Other areas of activity include production of a range of information materials for patients and families, including a quarterly, free magazine for families of children and young people with cancer.
Kids Cancer Charity (formerly known as Christian Lewis Trust)
The Trust is a registered charity in England and Wales No. 1113821, established in 1989. It offers a philosophy of child centred care focusing on quality of life issues, a range of family support services, bereavement support, self-help support groups, play therapists and holidays.
Around six young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ We’re the only charity dedicated to making this happen. We bring young people together so they can be treated together, by teenage cancer experts, in the best place for them.
Rarer Cancers Foundation
Helpline: 0800 334 5551
We provide up to date information on rarer cancers and treatment options available. We enable supportive networking for patients, carers and clinicians and act as a gateway, directing patients to further avenues of support and information, such as patient groups or charities.
The Sick Children’s Trust believes that no child should be separated from their family while receiving treatment for serious illness in hospital. Our mission is to provide high quality 'Home from Home' accommodation for families whose children are receiving hospital treatment for serious illness.
The aim of the foundation is 'energise, excite and empower healthy living in all young people'. The group has now joined forces with Cancer Research UK and re-launched the JLS Foundation this December, to coincide with Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The Foundation's aim is to help fund Cancer Research UK's vital research specifically into cancers that affect children, teenagers and young adults aged 0-24 within the UK, to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
