Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust
Who we are
The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust was set up in memory of Grace Elizabeth Kelly who passed away at the age of just 4 1/4 from a rare aggressive tumour on her kidney called a Malignant Rhabdoid Tumour. She went from being a happy, healthy school girl to passing away within 3 weeks.
The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust (GKCCT) for research into rare solid tumours of childhood, including malignant rhabdoid tumours is working to provide grants and funding for research into these tumours. We are also working to improve awareness of childhood cancer and the symptoms children may present with.
Childhood cancer affects 1 in every 285 children before their 20th birthday.
It is also the biggest medical cause of death of children in the UK. Despite this fact, research is massively underfunded. We are fighting to change this.
We are working to save lives to fulfill Grace's wish of helping others.
