Every day around 10 young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer. Despite improving survival rates, cancer is the leading cause of death in children, teenagers and young adults.
We’ve made great progress in tackling children's cancers over the last 40 years, but survival rates across different types of cancers vary and for some children's cancers survival rates are still far too low. Treatment can have very debilitating side-effects for young people that can sadly last long into adult life, so finding kinder treatments is vital.
By supporting the work of Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens at Geronimo Festivals, you will be helping to find cures and kinder treatments for young people facing cancer, like this amazing little girl, Zofeya.
