World Child Cancer UK

Over 300,000 children worldwide develop cancer each year. In the developed world, 80% will survive. In the developing world, as few as 10% will survive.

We are working hard to change this. With better access to relatively simple and inexpensive treatment, it is possible to improve survival rates to over 50%.

Our vision is a world where every child with cancer has equal access to the best treatment and care.
