Monday 28 September 2020 in News from the Cancer Centre

Research is crucial to unlocking knowledge to help make cancer a disease of the past, and our team in the Children's Cancer Research Unit (CCRU) are committed to using social media this month to raise awareness and encourage community support.

"Every year in September, we look to honour and remember children with cancer, their families and community, bringing greater awareness and support at every opportunity," says Janett Clarkson, Research and Development Manager.
