Dressing down to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
30th August 2019
Our Cheshire Head Office staff are again dressing down to support Children with Cancer UK in their efforts to raise awareness and money for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
What Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is all about
Each September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month helps to highlight the impact of cancer on young people and their families. This, in turn, helps us to protect more children, improve the lives of young cancer patients and bring hope to them and their families through ground-breaking research.
How Children with Cancer UK are helping
Children with Cancer UK currently fund more than 60 research projects at centres of excellence around the UK. These projects are investigating a broad range of childhood cancers – helping them to better understand these diseases and to find more effective, less toxic ways of treating them.
Through their investment in research, they are taking forward a better understanding of childhood cancer, to give new insights into ways of treating young patients with even the most difficult forms of cancer.
Children with Cancer UK are the nation’s leading charity dedicated to helping children and their families in the fight against cancer. Their small team has been helping to save and improve lives for over 30 years, aiming to determine the causes, find cures and provide care for children with cancer.
Almost 4,500 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year nationwide and charities such as Children with Cancer UK rely on donations to help carry on the life-saving work that they do.
