Who we are
Alice’s Arc is a children’s cancer charity. We fund research on more targeted and less harsh treatments for children affected by rhabdomyosarcoma. Our ultimate goal is to help find a cure for this type of childhood cancer. We also support the children and families impacted by the disease.
We work in collaboration with the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and the Royal Marsden (RM) to help improve outcomes for children with rhabdomyosarcoma. We fund the salaries of key scientists, the provision of equipment required for research, research nurses and other ad-hoc requests.
We also aim to increase awareness of childhood cancer by working with other childhood cancer charities and influential research centres in order to lobby for changes that can help maximise the opportunities to improve the understanding of rhabdomyosarcoma and improve the level of collaboration across institutions.
