CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives.
We know everyone is different, so we work hard to help when each child and young person needs it most.
Those first days, weeks and months after a cancer diagnosis are overwhelming, when young cancer patients are confused, scared and anxious. From the moment of diagnosis, we’re there and ready to help families cope. Our care teams provide day-to-day support for each child, young person and family, from information and guidance to clinical care and specialist play during treatment.
As if a cancer diagnosis isn’t tough enough, the financial impact of cancer can be devastating. Our research shows parents spend an average of £600 more every month when their child has cancer. Lots of travel for treatment, hotels, extra heating costs at home. It soon adds up, causing further anxiety and worry. CLIC Sargent care teams work with young people and families to help them get vital financial support. We also help liaise with young people’s employers and sort out housing issues to keep families together, because day-to-day life doesn’t stop when you have cancer.
