Treating Children with Cancer
What We Do
Welcome to Treating Children with Cancer Website.
Brief introduction on who we are and what we do, we are a registered charity organisation dedicated in helping treat children with cancer and supporting the children and family at such difficult times.
Treating Children with Cancer is assisting hospital research labs with research into the nature,causes,diagnoses and prevention of cancer.
One of our recent project is helping with the cost in running tests on samples on Wilms tumour. Wilms tumour is rare, it has taken a number of years to collect these samples.These sample sets are very valuable to perform modern “genomic analysis” of all the genes at once.However these tests are expensive (about £600 per sample).
Please feel free to check out the projects that we have been involved with.
No child should suffer cancer alone, Treating Children with Cancer is dedicated and driven to help save and improve young lives.
- Promote and protect the physical and mental health of children suffering from cancer.
- Relieve sickness by assisting research into the nature, causes, diagnoses and prevention of cancer.
- Promote and protect the mental health of the families of children suffering from cancer.
“We are so grateful for the support that Treating Children with Cancer have given the Theodora Children’s Charity over the past 5 years. Their donations have helped to fund professional performers, called Giggle Doctors, to bring magical moments to brave children in hospitals across England. The most recent donation, made in December 2014, will help fund special moments for children who are being treated on the oncology wards of Birmingham Children’s Hospital. We are so grateful for the ongoing support of Treating Children with Cancer, who help us to bring smiles to hundreds of children each year.”

“We are truly grateful to Treating Children with Cancer for your generosity towards Macmillan’s work. Your support has made a tremendous difference to the lives of many children and young people affected by cancer, and has helped us to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone.”

“We’re very grateful to Treating Children with Cancer for generously supporting our work on Wilms Tumour, the commonest childhood kidney cancer. With this funding, we have for the first time been able to apply ‘personalised genomics’ to samples from individual patients, looking for mutated (damaged) genes that might be targets for new drug treatments. A minority of children with Wilms Tumour don’t respond well to standard therapies, and we hope that this new approach will help us find more effective ways of treating them.”
