CLIC Sargent is a charity in the United Kingdom formed in 2005. The charity specializes in supporting children with cancer and their families. It provides clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help children cope with cancer and get the most out of life.
CLIC Sargent was formed in 2005 after a successful merger between Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood (CLIC) and Sargent Cancer Care for Children.
Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood (CLIC), was founded in 1976 by Bob Woodward following the diagnosis of his young son with cancer two years earlier.
