The Children's Cancer Centre

The Children's Cancer Centre

Donate to help build the new Children’s Cancer Centre at GOSH today

Childhood and cancer. Two words that should never go together.

But every week, around five children in the UK lose their lives to cancer. That’s five families who are faced with the worst news possible.

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) cares for children with the hardest to treat cancers but the hospital needs a new home to create breakthrough therapies which will benefit children all over the world.

A new world-class centre that will treat the child, not just their disease. A gateway for children to go on to better futures, where they not only survive, but flourish.

  • £25
    Could help towards a bespoke sofa bed so that a parent can stay overnight with their child in their room.

Donate and support more families like Yumna's

The new Children’s Cancer Centre at GOSH will help children like Yumna, who was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma in November 2021 when she was just two years old.

After her diagnosis, Yumna was immediately started on induction chemotherapy and by the third cycle, she started losing her hair. It was a really difficult time for Yumna and her family.

In April 2022, she moved to high-dose chemotherapy, and stayed at GOSH for over two months. She also had surgery to remove the tumour and in October 2022 started immunotherapy which will last for seven months.

The larger rooms in the new Children’s Cancer Centre will be amazing. Having a balcony space where parents can go outside for a breather will make a huge difference to their mental health.

Salma, Yumna's mum

The new Children's Cancer Centre will be a place designed with the needs of children like Yumna and their families at its heart. A place that will support every aspect of care, from diagnosis to remission and beyond.

Help us build the new Children’s Cancer Centre at GOSH and save more children’s lives.

If you can help build it, you can help beat it.

Build it. Beat it.
