Professor Louis Chesler and his team have made the huge strides over the past decade in improving treatment options for children with cancer - progress made possible because of long-term investment in this area of research, including from supporters like you.
More effective treatments for childhood cancer
One area that our scientists have made major developments in is childhood cancer research. This has only been possible because of long-term investment in this area of research, including from supporters like you. In the UK, nearly 2,000 children aged 14 or under are diagnosed with cancer each year. But while overall survival rates have more than doubled in the past 50 years, prognoses for some types of childhood cancers remain poor.
Cancer in children is not as well understood as other cancers, as they are relatively rare and diverse, which means treatments are limited. Those children who do survive cancer are often left with debilitating side effects due to the nature of the therapies available, so we need to develop kinder, more effective treatments.
