Kids Integrated Cancer Treatment is a unique charitable organisation that is dedicated to providing support to families with children who are fighting cancer and other serious illnesses.
Having a child diagnosed with cancer is a massive shock for the whole family, and something that is the dread of every parent. Unfortunately this devastating news is delivered to the parents of over 1500 children each year here in the UK.
The emotional rollercoaster ride that follows is made no easier by financial difficulties, an overload of new and often complicated information and the strains of attempting to continue with a normal family life.
Thankfully due to improved treatment protocols and a better understanding of the causes of cancer around 72% of these children can expect to survive more than 5 years. For many of the most common types of childhood cancer like Leukeamia the survival rate is over 90%. However for some aggressive forms of the disease like Neuroblastoma the survival rate can be as as low as 30%. These are among some of the worst childhood cancer survival rates in Europe.
Here at KICT we know that every child has the potential to beat their illness if every weapon available to us is used. These weapons can be as wide ranging as cutting edge laser surgical techniques to simple dietry and lifestyle changes, from the latest gene therapies to simply finding and removing possible causes.
Unfortunately many of these treatments are not available through the National Health Service and cost more than most families can afford.
