Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Cancer costs more than you might think for young cancer patients and their families in the UK. This Childhood Cancer Awareness Month families are sharing their experiences of travel costs.

Young cancer patients face a 60 mile round trip, on average, to get treatment, costing £180 a month when treatment is at its most intense. Families are facing debt and worrying about how they’ll put petrol in their car or pay train fares.

In the last 12 months, 4,450 young cancer patients and their families have spent around £5 million travelling for treatment. In these uncertain times, CLIC Sargent knows these costs are only going up. Donate this Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to help more families with their travel costs.
