Every day, 12 families in the UK will be given the news
that their child has cancer.
On World Cancer Day,
Blake’s mum is asking for your help.
At just three years old, Blake was diagnosed with a brain tumour. He spent months in intensive care and had 18 months of chemotherapy. Blake has been left paralysed from the chest down and with other ongoing difficulties.
But now nine years old, Blake’s in school, he’s a happy little boy and has been stable for over four years. Let’s hope that continues.
Monday 4th February is World Cancer Day, when the world comes together to raise awareness and to take action to reduce the devastating impact that cancer has.
Today, 12 families in the UK will be given the devastating news that their child has cancer. To mark 2019’s World Cancer Day, we hope to raise awareness by shining a spotlight on this shocking statistic. Will you consider donating £12 to support young cancer patients and to keep their families together.
For this year’s World Cancer Day, we asked families affected by childhood cancer to share their stories. They tell us about their journeys and show us why it’s so important to help fund breakthrough research and keep families together.
