Dunn AC are proud to be supporting Alice’s Arc, a children’s cancer charity who fund research on more targeted and less harsh treatments for children affected by rhabdomyosarcoma.
Alice's Arcs' ultimate goal is to help find a cure for this type of childhood cancer. They also support the children and families impacted by the disease. An example of this is through the provision of drugs that make the treatment process easier to cope with.
Sarcoma’s are cancers that can resemble bone or soft tissues. Rhabdomyosarcomas are the most common soft tissue sarcomas that occur in children and they tend to arise in muscle or fibrous tissue. There are around 80-100 new cases in the UK each year.
Alice's Arc 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. they fund the salaries of key scientists, the provision of equipment required for research, research nurses and other ad-hoc requests.
They 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.
