Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to raising money for research and providing care for children with cancer and their families. It was established in 1987 by Eddie and Marion O’Gorman in memory of their son Paul who died from leukaemia. The O’Gorman’s lost a second child, their daughter Jean, to cancer shorty after their first fundraising event. Just days after Jeans death they met Diana, Princess of Wales who was deeply moved by their tragedy and personally helped the family start the charity which she inaugurated in 1988. What began as a small memorial charity has now become a major force in paediatric oncology helping to drive childhood leukaemia survival rates up to over 80%. Every week in the UK more than 70 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer. Children with Cancer UK has now raised over £250 million which is used to support vital research into the causes, prevention and treatment of cancer in children and clinical trials. The charity also funds research centers and respite accommodation for affected families.
