Different challenges, same determination

Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People is the part of Cancer Research UK dedicated to supporting research into cancers affecting 0-24-year-olds.

Around 4,200 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. Thanks to research, more than 8 in 10 of those diagnosed today will survive for at least 10 years. But survival for some children’s cancers hasn’t improved much since the 1970s. And many of those who do survive experience long-term side effects from their treatment.

We’re determined to tackle the challenges holding back progress and ensure more children and young people survive cancer with a good quality of life.Find out more about our plans to overcome these challenges.
