The Sun is encouraging readers to donate to the CLIC Sargent charity.
Each day in the UK, says The Sun, 11 children such as three-year-old Callum Tolley (pictured) are diagnosed with the disease.
The Sun is encouraging readers to donate to the CLIC Sargent charity. CLIC Sargent supports around 3,800 children and young people over Christmas, in hospital and at home. Donations will go towards funding accommodation near hospitals at ten of the charity’s Homes From Homes around the country, which will be full with 92 families.
The 2017 campaign will also pay for specialist nurses who look after the children and organise parties for the poorest, along with support for families.
Sargent Cancer Care For Children was founded in 1968, in memory of British conductor and composer Sir Malcolm Sargent, who died of pancreatic cancer the previous year.
It joined forces with CLIC, which stands for Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood, and was founded in 1976 by Bob Woodward. His son Robert died from cancer in 1977 aged 11.
Since its formation in 2005, CLIC Sargent has helped an estimated 35,254 children with cancer and their families.
