When cancer strikes young lives CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage cancer causes beyond their health.
Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Today, 11 more children and young people will hear the devastating news that they have cancer. From diagnosis, CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams will step in, ready to help, support and guide. They will provide a specialist package of support tailored to each young cancer patient and family.

We're paying tribute to our founder Bob Woodward OBE, who sadly died on Sunday 20 January, 2019 aged 85. In 1976, Bob established the charity CLIC (Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood) – one of two charities which later merged to form CLIC Sargent.The below photo is of Bob Woodward (second from the right) at our Fishponds charity shop in Bristol in 2018. 

Bob set out on an important mission to improve standards of treatment, care and support for families facing childhood cancer, after his son Robert was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 1974 and sadly died in 1977 aged 11.

When Robert was diagnosed, Bob and his wife Judy suddenly became aware of the issues around cancer in young people and their families, including being a long way from home while receiving treatment. 

Bob established the very first ‘Home from Home’ in Bristol providing free accommodation for the families of young cancer patients where families could stay together whilst their child is receiving treatment. CLIC Sargent now has 10 Homes from Home in the UK and is working to build more.

Kate Lee, our CEO has paid tribute today, “Bob’s caring nature and his drive to not stop until every child and young person suffering from cancer receives better support, lives on in our charity’s values today. It’s with Bob’s commitment that we continue our mission to be there for the 12 children and young people who hear the devastating news that they have cancer each day.”
