About Us

Everything started with a promise

In 1987, the O’Gorman family was shattered when brother and sister, Paul and Jean, fell victim to cancer within months of each other. Just days after Jean’s death, their parents met Diana, Princess of Wales. Deeply moved by the double tragedy, Diana personally helped Marion and Eddie start the charity.

Since then, Children with Cancer UK has evolved into a major force in paediatric oncology. To date, over £250 million has been raised to help the fight against childhood cancer, saving young lives and keeping families together.
