The story of one family's fight with childhood cancer

About childhood cancer

Approximately 1700 children (15 & under) per year have a new diagnosis of cancer in the UK. This figure has changed very little from year to year, but in the 1960s less than 3 in 10 children survived. Today due to the investment by many charities like Candlelighters into research, more than 7 in 10 children are cured.

Other than accident, the many forms that cancer takes remain the biggest killer of children in the UK. Some cancers have a better outcome than others, often because there have been more patients to try treatments on, whereas some of the rarer cancers are harder to overcome.

Treatment of childhood cancer in the UK is at one of 21 specialist centres. Leeds is where Rocky was treated.
