Every week in Northern Ireland, another three families are told the devastating news their child has cancer.  Cancer Fund for Children is here to support those children and their families, providing them with practical, emotional and financial support to help them cope with the impact cancer has on their lives.

By supporting us, you’ll be helping us be there for families so they don’t have to face cancer alone.
