Science is the solution for kids with cancer, and every donation adds up. That means kids like Dulcie here, who was diagnosed with Wilms tumour at 3 years of age, can lead happy, long and healthy lives.
Today, eight out of ten children diagnosed with cancer will survive. However, these improvements are not across all childhood cancer types. For instance, the survival rate for brain cancer survival is only 50%.
Because of the treatments they had as kids, more than 99% of childhood cancer survivors will have a chronic health problem later in life.
Research will discover kinder, more effective treatments for all childhood cancers.
