Childhood Cancer Awareness Month - September 2016

Each year in the UK almost three hundred children die as a result of cancer and each week almost one hundred children are told they have cancer.  Being diagnosed with cancer is a very frightening experience the result of which can have considerable emotional, practical and financial implications for the whole family.  There will be a number of differing events across the UK that aim to raise awareness of childhood cancer, its impact and highlight the benefits of helping children spend more time at home.
