Abby's Heroes

On average families spend an additional £600 per month when their child is diagnosed with cancer (CANC£R COSTS: CLIC Sargent 2016).

To assist with this, Abby's Heroes supports families when their child is on treatment by awarding financial hardship grants to relieve the poverty parents find themselves facing as a result of their child's diagnosis.

These grants can be for a host of reasons such as rent or mortgage payments, household bills and other everyday living costs while their child is in hospital, additional travel costs to hospital or sadly help towards funeral costs.

Alfie's Wish

Alfie's Wish supports children with cancer in the UK by providing days out to them and their families to a destination of their choice in the UK. 

Working closely with UK hospitals we accept referral applications from Young lives vs cancer social workers and our aim is to fund a day out for children with cancer (0 – 16 years) and their families. We know just how important it is to make memories when your child is fighting cancer, how special family time is so we want to help others. We also know the financial impact that cancer has on a family so funding days out often become impossible.

Whether it’s a theme park, zoo, museum, sporting or music event to name but a few our aim is to get children there to make their dreams come true.

Brain Research UK

Our vision is a world where everyone with a neurological condition lives better, longer.

There is an estimated 11 million people in the UK living with a neurological condition. These conditions are wide-ranging and and include sudden onset conditions such as stroke or traumatic brain injury, progressive, degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease and intermittent conditions such as epilepsy and headache disorders. 

When the brain changes, we change. When it is struck by a brain tumour, an injury or disease, the consequences can be devastating. Neurological conditions cause 140,000 deaths a year in the UK and they are the leading cause of disability worldwide. 

Brain Research UK, the UK's leading dedicated funder of neurological research, funds research to advance the understanding of the changes that take place in the brain and how these can be overcome. We fund the best science to achieve the greatest impact for people effected by neurological conditions, to help them live life better, longer. 

Thank you so much. Your support will help to ensure continued funding of life changing, life saving research.

Brain Tumour Research

Our vision is to find a cure for brain tumours.

Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... yet historically just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.

Brain Tumour Research is determined to change this.

We are building a network of experts in sustainable research at dedicated Centres of Excellence whilst influencing the UK Governments and larger cancer charities to invest more nationally.

We are the only national charity in the UK that is dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours and we are a leading voice calling for greater support and action for research into what scientists are calling the last battleground against cancer.

Help us fund the fight.

Together we will find a cure.

We have played a major role in helping the North of England become one of the best places to be for those unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with a blood cancer.

There are a wide range of blood cancers. Some are more devastating than others, but every diagnosis is life changing. It is often not until you have been touched by them that you realise just how common they are, how dreadful they can be and how much more we need to do to eradicate them.

Join our fight against blood cancer for a brighter future.

CHECT also raises awareness of this cancer and funds research.

Your support enables CHECT to fund global research projects to improve treatments and reduce the negative impact on those babies and young children affected.

Cyclists Fighting Cancer

Cyclists Fighting Cancer was founded in 2005 and provides a unique and highly effective way of helping kids with cancer through activity and exercise.

Approximately 2,400 children and young people (up to and including the age of 18) are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK and we are passionate about helping all these families along this difficult journey. By playing our lottery you can help us reach more children and get them pedalling on the road to recovery!

The effects of cancer and its associated treatments are numerous; amputations, balance issues, physical weakness, coordination difficulties, concerns over body image, lack of self-esteem and confidence are just some of the most common side effects. Enabling a child to ride a lightweight bike or specially adapted trike helps to address these issues in a fun, sociable and child friendly form. It improves physical fitness without the children realising they are exercising, helps to get them active outside reducing stress and anxiety, and it helps with social re-engagement and rebuilds positive relationships with friends and peers. It is fun quality time with family members and an opportunity to build happy memories.

Playing our weekly lottery is an exciting way to support our work. We help around 600 families a year and with your help we can reach even more, and you’ll be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize too!

Hope for Tomorrow

Cancer treatment can be emotional, time consuming and often needs to take place over long periods. Hope for Tomorrow is a charity dedicated to reducing the stress of cancer care by bringing it closer to NHS patients. We build and provide mobile cancer care units to NHS trusts. The treatment units drive out to patients’ communities rather than patients having to make long and sometimes stressful journeys to hospital for their cancer care.

Each fully-equipped mobile cancer care unit houses four treatment chairs allowing NHS cancer care nurses to treat up to 20 patients a day. The average time a patient saves for each appointment is 2.5 hours, which significantly reduces the impact on their working lives and their families. It also makes them less dependent on others for transport.
Hope for Tomorrow currently provides 14 mobile cancer care units and 13 nurse support vehicles to 11 NHS trusts. Last year the units allowed the NHS to deliver 26,447 treatments in local communities.

Kids Cancer Charity

Welcome to Kids Cancer Charity, we support children with cancer and their families from all over the UK through their challenging journey. Life changes when a child is diagnosed with cancer, every aspect of their life and that of their family is thrown into turmoil. We understand the complexity of emotions and rigorous physical demands of treatment and our wish is for children affected by cancer and their families to not feel alone. Providing support through our Holiday Programme and Play Therapy from diagnosis through treatment and beyond our aim is to foster wellbeing.

Time away from hospitals, treatment plans, the physical demands of unrelenting clinical routine and the emotional toll, our Holiday Programmes give the precious gift of time together. Providing respite, an opportunity to recharge and create valuable lasting memories they open a world of possibility when all around can seem hopeless.

Our specialist Play Therapists provide emotional support and development; through a child’s natural language of play they are able to express emotions and gain understanding to make sense of their experiences, assisting them with coping.

Please help us to lift spirits, provide emotional support and restore wellbeing. Your meaningful contribution will enable us to help more children affected by cancer and their families.

Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK

Thank you for considering supporting our charity.

WE ARE UNIQUE AMONGST ALL OTHER BLOOD CANCER CHARITIES. We are the only UK charity that offers a FREE umbilical cord blood collection and banking service for qualifying families. This service, called Model Cell Biobank, is designed to allow the collection and storage of cord blood stem cells to families who have a history of cancer in their immediate family and who cannot afford to pay for a private service. These cells will then be available for at least the following 25 years, to treat the child from whom they were collected, or another family member.

The service costs us over £2,000 per collection to deliver and your support could give hope, and possible life saving treatment, to a family who needs it now, or in the future and cannot afford to pay for it themselves.

In addition, we also support research into stem cell therapies to treat blood cancer and seek to raise the awareness of everyone as to the potential benefits of this type of treatment which is not as well known as it should be.

Please help us, help others. Thank you.

Our aim is to find new and safer treatments in the form of an antibody based magic bullet which works the patients own immune system to specifically target leukaemia cells.

Leukaemia UK

We are Leukaemia UK. We believe research has the power to stop leukaemia devastating lives.

Leukaemia doesn’t discriminate. It affects people of all ages – from babies to grandparents. More people are living longer with leukaemia but, despite decades of progress only half of leukaemia patients live longer than five years after their diagnosis. We won’t stop until we change this.

What if through research, we could accelerate progress and improve the lives of people affected by leukaemia today and in the future?
By bringing together the experience and expertise of people who are living and working with leukaemia, we will do everything we can to make sure that the next person diagnosed has the best possible experience of diagnosis, treatment and care.

MCA Trust

The MCA Trust supports cancer patients under the age of 22 across East London and Essex. We aim to bring hope and happiness to these vibrant young people and their families during some of the most challenging times they’ll ever face.

The scope of our work is varied. We provide financial and emotional support inside and outside of hospital environments.

Working in partnership with local NHS Trusts, we identify and fund projects that will make a real difference to children who are battling cancer. Completed projects include purchasing sophisticated medical equipment and refurbishing dedicated children’s oncology areas to create a better experience for all users.

Respite between treatments is a fundamental aspect of every child’s recovery. We also recognise that the cancer journey is hard on the whole family, so one of the ways we provide support comes from arranging experiences and holidays to sought-after locations that many children might wish for.

Every penny from the lottery is going towards our MCA Trust Education and Careers scheme - funding private tuition for children that have lost out on education due to strenuous cancer treatments.

Neuroblastoma UK

Every week in the UK, around two children are diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive and life-threatening cancer.

Neuroblastoma UK is a national charity dedicated to finding a cure for neuroblastoma. For over 40 years we have funded vital research into improving both diagnosis and treatment of this terrible disease.

Many children have little in the way of symptoms and it is often hard to diagnose neuroblastoma un the early stages. Neuroblastoma, particularly ‘high risk’ neuroblastoma, often shoes itself at a late stage when it has spread around the body. For many families, the first time they hear the word ‘neuroblastoma’ is when their child is diagnosed.

Too many children are dying from neuroblastoma. Despite advances in treatment, high-risk neuroblastoma has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood cancers. In addition, children currently receive intensive therapy that can also lead to other, lifelong health challenges.

More research is desperately needed to make breakthroughs in the treatment and diagnosis of neuroblastoma. By playing our weekly lottery you can help fund more vital research that will improve treatment for children with neuroblastoma and save more young lives. Thank you.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation

Every year more than 9,000 people face the diagnosis of cancer in Lancashire and South Cumbria.

The Rosemere Cancer Foundation works in partnership with local clinical staff to achieve the best possible care for cancer patients in Lancashire and South Cumbria wherever they are treated. It does this by raising funds for cutting edge specialist equipment which is not yet standard in the NHS, local cancer research projects that help improve our understanding of cancer and how it can be better diagnosed and treated, top quality training to help clinical staff share best practice and be the very best they can be and for projects supporting innovative ways to take the fear out of cancer for patients and their families during their treatment.
