Every day brings new challenges at Great Ormond Street Hospital
Every day, 619 children and young people from across the UK arrive. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses, and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs.
And every day is a chance for you to make a difference. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential.
A better future for seriously ill children starts here.
The need to combat childhood cancers
In 2019 2,327 children will be treated for cancer. Tragically, in the UK, cancer represents the biggest cause of childhood mortality outside of accidental death.
The money raised by Kiss it Better goes towards the pioneering paediatric cancer research at Great Ormond Street Hospital. This looks into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer to make sure that as many children as possible are benefiting from the latest research and clinical trials.
