Cancer is shocking, overwhelming, isolating… and completely unfair. Especially when you’re young. It takes over your life. Treatment is gruelling and your ambitions and dreams – education, relationships, career, travel – suddenly seem very far away.

In 2005, two charities joined forces to better help children and young people with cancer, and their families.

  • Sargent Cancer Care for Children, founded in 1968 by Sylvia Darley OBE as a lasting memory to the late Sir Malcolm Sargent.
  • CLIC (Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood), founded in 1976 in the south west by Bob Woodward OBE following the diagnosis of his young son Robert with cancer. Sadly, Robert died in 1977 aged 11, and Bob went on to dedicate his life to charity work.

Together, they are CLIC Sargent – young lives against cancer.
