The Tim Bacon Foundation are extremely proud to hand over a cheque to Kidscan for £99,000. This is an incredible amount that will be used to match fund three PhD students over three years to research into Children’s Cancer treatments. A big thank you goes out to all of our supporters who have raised funds by completing personal challenges, attending events and donating £1 on the bill as well as other fundraising initiatives.
Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research is a Salford based charity who funds and manages research into new and improved treatments for children with cancer. They fund research to develop new treatments that not only cure children with cancer but also prevent the side effects of current treatments, which include learning difficulties, mobility and infertility issues.
Cancer is the leading cause of death in children with 25% of children that are diagnosed not making it to their 30th birthdays. Many of those who do survive suffer life-long and life-limiting side effects which are caused by their treatments. Kidscan do not receive any statutory funding but fundraise and receive contributions from individuals, general public, grants and businesses.
