During the month of December, we bring attention to the 10,000 children under the age of 14 who are living with cancer in the UK now.
It is important to raise awareness of children's cancer. More than 80% of children who are diagnosed with cancer will survive it.
We've got information about symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of children's cancers. We also have information about how cancer might affect your family and how we can help you.
Find out about the cancer types that are most likely to affect teenagers and young adults. You can also see information about living with cancer as a teenager.
Watch our video of how Macmillan helped Emily and her family when Emily was diagnosed with cancer. And see how you can help us be there for more families this Christmas.
