Kidscan is supporting World Cancer Day on February 4th by having a stand at the Trafford Centre. 

World Cancer Day was born on the 4 February 2000 at the World Summit Against Cancer for the New Millennium in Paris.

The Paris Charter aims to promote research, prevent cancer, improve patient services, raise awareness and mobilise the global community to make progress against cancer, and includes the adoption of World Cancer Day.

Salford-based Kidscan is dedictaed to beating children's cancer.

Kidscan's objective is to help every child that is diagnosed with cancer to survive and thrive.

Cancer is the leading cause of death in children in the UK.

1 in 500 children will be diagnosed with cancer before they are 14 years old.

Although around 75% will survive, sadly 60% of those who do will suffer from life-long, life-limiting side effects caused by the treatments used to save their lives.

Kidscan is one of the only charities in the UK solely dedicated to combating children's cancer. The charity wants to ensure every child diagnosed with cancer survive and thrive through to adulthood.

Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research is a Salford-based charity that funds and manages research into new and improved treatments for children with cancer.

Kidscan receives no statutory funding, but with the contributions from the public, volunteers and businesses it funds research to develop new treatments that not only cure children with cancer, but also prevent the side effects of current treatments such learning difficulties, mobility issues and infertility.
