Motion text

That this House notes that Wednesday 15th February is International Childhood Cancer Day 2006; further notes that cancer and leukaemia are the biggest killer diseases of children in the UK and that five new cancer cases in children and young people are diagnosed every day; recognises that cancers in children develop in different parts of the body and impact upon health in different ways compared to those which emerge in adults; believes that children living with cancer benefit when they receive rapid treatment at specialist centres; applauds the invaluable work of the UK's 22 child cancer units, including the one at Barts and the Royal London Hospital; further notes that a number of events are taking place in the UK and worldwide to mark International Childhood Cancer Day, including a continuation of the Through My Eyes: A Day in the Life of Children with Cancer Around the World project, through which children living with cancer tell their own story by taking photographs of their school and hospital; and calls on the Government to raise public awareness of cancers in children and promote research into effective treatment of these cancers and leukaemia.
