September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Tailend is super proud to promote and support this with our friends at tobysmagicaljourney.co.uk
Toby's Magical Journey is the brain child of Toby Etheridge who in 2014, aged just 9 years old was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Since then he has tirelessly fundraised to show others that life living with cancer is not all doom and gloom and you can overcome cancer.
Toby has fundraised almost consistently over the past few months to try and raise awareness for Childhood Cancer and to raise as much money as he can for his charity, especially during this month.
-To raise awareness and educate the general public in understanding all aspects of childhood and adolescent cancer
- To offer support to families and carers to help improve their quality of life.
Cancer Awareness Information
In the UK and Ireland, around 30 children (up to the age of 15) are diagnosed with cancer each week. It is around 1 in every 500 children, or around 1600 a year. There are a further 2200 diagnosis in teenagers and young adults.
Cure rates for children are much higher than for most adult cancers. On average, 82% (over 8 in 10) of all children can now be completely cured. For some types of children's cancer, the cure rate is much higher.
However, for some types of childhood cancer, cure rates are much lower and less progress has been made. Further research is urgently needed!
Cancer remains the number 1 cause of death by disease for children. Sadly, around 250 children and a further 300 teenagers and young adults die from cancer each year.
We need to help raise as much money as possible to help research, further understanding and, of course, develop cures and treatments for cancer.
Wear your gold ribbon this September in support of childhood cancer awareness month and help us support children with cancer.
