Supporting Research and Treatment of Childhood Brain Tumours. Current treatments do not have the desired cure rates and those that are cured do not have the desired quality of life post treatment.
One of the slight ironies is that we always believe that ‘children’ come first. In the classic example of a sinking ship – it is always women and children first, because children are the future. We had always naively assumed that the same would be true when it came to children’s cancer, but the truth is, that children’s cancers are really poorly funded. The drugs used to treat children were all developed for adults and have been adapted for children.
Children’s Brain Cancer Research is almost solely funded by family’s and friends who realise the hard way that this is the case and who cannot turn their back once they have been enlightened. Every time someone looks the other way, another child dies from cancer. If you feel grateful it is not yours, please choose this charity to give your car to!
