Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

This September you can play an important part in helping raise awareness of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and help raise funds to support our work.

Cancer is the No 1 killer of children in developed countries and each year in the UK more than 4,000 children develop cancer.

Awareness of childhood cancer remains limited. 80% of children with cancer in the UK are diagnosed with cancer that has already spread from the original site. Although 75% of children survive, most require intensive therapy due to late diagnosis.

But with your help CCPA can raise awareness of the impact of childhood cancer on children, young people, parents and the wider family.

This September become part of TEAMGOLD by wearing your Gold Ribbon, the the internationally recognised symbol for childhood cancer, get involved with one of our fundraising events or even host your own!
