A Life Should Be Long

When a child survives cancer, their hopes and dreams survive too.

A life should be long and full of stories, experiences and adventures. Every child should get the chance to grow up and grow old. To figure out what they want to do and who they want to be.

Sadly, not all lives are long. Cancer cuts life short for hundreds of children every year, before they've even had a chance to make their mark. This is what we find unacceptable.

At Children's Cancer Institute, our belief is that every child should outlive childhood. Through medical research, our aim is to provide safer treatments for children, and help them beat this disease. With your help, we will find a cure.
It's not if, it's when.

Maria's story

Cancer robbed Maria of her first Christmas. It also meant her first word, her first steps, her first birthday and her Christening, all happened in hospital.

Everything her mum Cathy had dreamed of for her little girl had been impossible because she spent the first two years of her life being treated for a rare, aggressive cancer.

When a child like Maria survives cancer, their hopes and dreams survive too.
