Today is National Childhood Cancer Day – how can you help a child with cancer?

Did you know that approximately 1,800 children aged 0-19 are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK?

National Childhood Cancer Day is held annually on 15 February to raise awareness about childhood cancer and the challenges it presents.

The campaign demonstrates support for children and young people with cancer, survivors, and their families across the globe.

It also highlights the importance of community participation and support when tackling challenges created by childhood cancer.

Our goal is to give every child the best treatment and care for their cancer diagnosis.

What we do to help

At Almond Care, we have treated many children who have been diagnosed with cancer.

It breaks our hearts to see these children, who are so brave, fight the terrible disease.

We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality care to make their lives the best they can be and, in many cases, get them back to being cancer free.

The care services we offer include:

  • Residential care
  • Care packages for young people aged 8-18
  • Therapeutic care

Cancer has an emotional toll on the entire family and is especially hard for a child to get their head around.

Processing their thoughts and feelings is as essential as getting physical care, so, so our qualified in-house psychotherapist provides help and support to navigate this difficult time.

We will also help to support and provide families with an in-depth understanding of a child’s cancer diagnosis, to ensure they are with the child every step of the way on their path to recovery.

Almond Children’s Care offers residential care, creating a safe environment where any child’s needs can be met with tailored support.
