Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG) is a leading children's cancer charity and the UK and Ireland's professional association for those involved in the treatment and care of children with cancer. Each week in the UK and Ireland, more than 30 children are diagnosed with cancer. Two out of ten children will not survive their disease.
Over the last 40 years, CCLG has played a key role in the major improvements in survival rates and the standards of care for children. CCLG brings together childhood cancer professionals to ensure all children receive the best possible treatment and care.
There are still some childhood cancers with a poor outlook, and many treatments can have long-lasting side effects. Further research is therefore vital, and the ultimate aim of CCLG is to cure as many children as possible while reducing the short and long-term side effects of treatment. CCLG funds and supports research into childhood cancers, and helps young patients and their families with their expert, high quality and award-winning information resources.
